Question Do unpublished researches count??

Hey everyone,

I know that apart from USMLE scores, USCEs and researches count too. But what if somebody has done numerous researches which are unpublished? Does it still count as having done a research? Or do the researches need to published in internationally accredited journals to count??

Thanks in advance

I think they count. they only have less impact. Think about it, how many IMG's have published research in big journals??

Unless you are aiming for a very big name, research per se has very limited impact, needless to say published research

( when I say research, I mean research done at your home country, off course I don't mean if you spend a year in the states doing research. This has a very large impact )
I did it !
