hey guys! i don't know maybe you're all sick of my research questions but...i'm facing a mini-drama right now, cuz i'm torn between two research projects that i could do this summer, my LAST summer. Both are clinical. one of them is in a highly competitive field i'm really interested in, a really really interesting topic, but no patient contact whatsoever (its phone surveys). the other one is in a field that's semi-interesting to me but involves lots and lots of patient contact, which i was really looking forward to. what do i do??? hey also - does anyone do research during their second year, or is that completely ridiculous and unheard of??? (i'm talking something relatively simple - i think - like phone surveys) and...when you apply for residency, is it important that research experience be in the field you are applying to? if you read this far, thanks! i'd really really appreciate any input.
