    Is bench research looked at more favorably than say making a research project (like something to do with smoking for instance) which would be more focused on statistics and prevention? Would psych research be adequate? I know I shouldn't do things to just "check off" but I don't want to miss anything either.

    Is it important to get a paper out of it? How much research is recommended?

    Research is research no matter what field you do it in. Publications are a DEFINITE plus.

    Is submitting an abstract a plus? It's not a publication, or is it?

    If you present the abstract at the conference that you submitted to then yes it would be a plus.
