I will be beginning my undergraduate years in a couple weeks, and I am trying to plan out my next four years. When I read through a lot of applicants stats I notice that many have done research at different instutions. I also noticed that they have had something published. Now my questions are, how would I go about doing research, because it seems like something that needs to be done for a med school applicant. My other question is what does mean when the person who has done research has got something published? Thanks everyone for your help!
