For a lot of people, curriculum and research opportunities seem to be important factors for deciding between med schools: e.g. at Duke, the one year pre-clinical curriculum allows for a dedicated research year. This seems great and all, but I'm just wondering: how is med student research different from undergrad research? I've spent the last two years in a basic science lab and no publications in sight. I imagine as a medical student I'll have even less time. What gives?
