I am an international student from India. I have done electives in Medicine and now I have been accepted for a 2 months research elective at Johns Hopkins in Orthopaedics. My personal interest is in Ortho now. Would research electives done in orthopaedics going to have any impact on my residency application, when I will be applying for ortho residency? Or should I try to find some clinical elective in the surgery specilality? What you guys think? I will appreciate your comments!
