Question hands on in competitive fields ?

HI
is it wise to go for hands on in competitive fields like surgery, gynecology.. (that r my goal) to increase my chance to be matched in my goals, or it s not wise and i will even loose the chance of IM and other doable residencies..?(i ,my self think about doing both..)
-i havent taken any steps, will do 1 in Aug, can i apply for these hands on now or i must /better wait?

thanks

U can do hands on in almost any specialty.. PM me if you want more info. Good networking, strong LoRs and great scores are the things considered for competitive specialties although everything is competitive now!
