Resident [Any Field]
I was talking to a classmate of mine (MS3) and we?re both interested in Radiology. He stated that it is advantageous to have performed research and even more so if you were published. Does this have any significance when applying for residency in radiology or any other field?

Research especially published in Radiology journals or presented at the RSNA or ARRS meetings are very helpful if you are shooting for the most competitive programs (Mallinkrodt, MGH, Stanford, Duke etc.) My room mate was rejected within one week of submitting his application to Bowman Gray. He was a senior, but not junior AOA. He first authored three papers, but not in Radiology literature. Don't do research if this would affect your grades, as your class ranking and Board scores are more important.
