Hello everyone. I will be entering medical school this fall at the University of Arizona. Because I want to set myself up to compete for sought-after residency positions (and also because I like science...also because I need the money ), I am planning on participating in my schools "Medical Student Research Program". Basically we select a mentor and spend 8 weeks this summer working with them on a specific research project. I am particularly interested in the following as possible residency choices: orthopedics, plastics, otolaryngology, radiology, and neurosurgery. I know that's a broad spectrum of fields, but I am quite certain that I will end up wanting to go into one of the above. My question is this: does it matter which field I choose to do research in? If I do research in, say, radiology, will it still be useful to me if I end up applying for plastics later on? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
