I was just curious to know that american graduates when apply for residency, do not usaully have publications on their resume, they do have research experience but rarely get their names in publication. How do the resiency PDs see those FMGs who have publications at undergraduate level? Because they dont expect students to get publications? especially if it gets published in an american journal. I have got a research article published an american journal but the project was carried out in my home country. How much impact it can have especially when applying for university based residency programs? Also what kind of research do they prefer from student? Clinical or basic science research? which one has more weightage? Thanks and would appreciate your comments!
