It is appreciated in small community hospitals that want skilled ppl to hold retractors, that's for sure. It will definetly help your to obtain and survive a preliminary surgical position. But other than that I don't know, it really depends on the program.

One thing is certain; being active in medicine looks much better than just studying for 5 years to take your USMLES
