It depends on where you want to match.

If you are going to apply to community programs where there is huge Spanish-only speaking patients then definitely learning Spanish is a great idea.

If yo are going to apply to a University programs where they love people with research achievement. Then definitely research is better.

One important point here, is that learning a language alone is not considered a full time job and therefore it might be considered a gap in your CV. I think you should go for both, do the research and at the same time learn Spanish, that will make you super candidate.

Thanks alot
I was wondering, I have participated in two research projects, unfortunately, non of them got published!, do they count in the CV??

another thing, Mayo and Cleveland clinics are considered community programs right?, are they included in the superiority of Spanish language on research?, or it doesn't count for such prestigious programs?
