Help Are my student research programs useful?

hello everyone!!!
i wonder if any of my student research programs back in in my country useful in fetching a us residency match??
because i taught these projects are important to a good cv!! and i took a laborious work in doing them ...if it is so important , i was thinking of some more projects...(iam still a student)

and one more thing....are any of my projects useful in gaining research clerkship in a reputed medical school??

any help would be appreciated >>> thank u

Since no one replied, I ll chime in. I would say don't waste your time, just spend that time on Step studying. They really want to see research / Clinical experience in US, because the hands on is completely different, even with regards to research. I have a friend from Bombay who did a ton but he ended up wasting time. That's just my opinion. But your time is def best spent on Step studying Or come to US and get a.research Job/externship. Even though I know my friends from bombay have amazing skills and they know more, for some reason they don't get the merit they deserve in US. So just be smart about it.
