can we use research and abstracts/publications that we had during ugrad (before starting med school) for our residency application? does it help, or is it just what you do during med school that is imp for residency? my current PI is trying to convince me to stay with the teacm a few more months by saying my research will be very important for my future (residency, felloships), but i rather be doing PAID non-medical/science work and relaxing (im not in school this semester). i have one unfinished project, which may never finish cause we ran into some problems. its so frustrating and hard to leave cause ive been there for so long. is that true or am i just being used??
