Question Surgery Research For IM Application

Hi
I would like to know if research under an oncosurgeon would help me with IM residency.
She is the head of dept of surgery at a reputed institution and has numerous publications (mostly in surgery journals)
Also she heads a cancer center which is composed of pathologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, surgeons and transplant specialists and other medical specialists.

How much importance would her LOR carry?

Do you think I could justify this in my interviews saying I worked under her guidance but as a part of the team (that also composed of IM faculty) ?



Kindly suggest.

Thanks

Yeah. Her LoR will have great impact and will be appreciated by IM program directors.

But don't forget that she should recommend you for IM when she writes the LoR.

Thanks for your reply.

Would you suggest I go ahead applying to other IM faculty people or stick to this one?

What are the other possible explanations I could give for doing this research?

Thanks
