My university offers two programs for our senior year, URE and CURE. URE allows us to do lab-based research alongside our professors to help with their personnel research. CURE is similar, but more like a standard class and therefore less time consuming. My advisory says both are okay for medical school. What should I do? Do a research lab with a professor on a topic that might not be medical, or do the courses to give myself time for shadowing and volunteering.
