Portugal Laboratory Clerkships at Harvard

Hi guys,
I am a 4th year medical student from Portugal and I have been recently considering pursuing a medical career abroad. I've joined these forums because the US is within my scope. I hope your help will contribute in reaching a decision and also aid in achieving that goal if i ever decide to go for it.

The HMS-PT Program has opened vacancies for laboratory clerkships at Harvard Medical School during this next Summer, and I would like to know if participating in such program, even though it won't provide clinical experience, would enrich a potential residency application. The program has a minimum duration of 8 weeks and it has a rigorous selection process, they will only choose 7 participants, but nevertheless i would just like to know how do you rate such programs.

Thanks in advance.

It is Harvard. It is a big name. I would strongly recommend you going there as LOR from Harvard would help you a lot in your future career.
