I'm currently unsure of what specialty I want to do but probably not one of the competitive ones (Peds, Internal Med, Anesthesia). I'm doing research in endocrinology and have publications. Will this be helpful even if I don't apply to the field? Just looking for ways to build my app now that step 1 will likely be P/F.

That is helpful. Endocrinology spans a lot of different fields including IM and Peds.

Research is research to an extent. If it’s not in the field you apply for, it still shows that you have that skill.

Any research is better than no research. Once you get SOME research, then you should try and search for specialty-specific research, but if you can't find that, then it would be better to get more non-specialty specific research than no research..

...catch my drift?
