Question Is the type of research important?

Hey, I will be applying for the 2016 match in gen surg. I am still in medical school, but I have already done basic science research in the field of Immunology and was able to publish and contribute with talks/posters to a lot of conferences in the USA. I did 9 months of surgical subinternships in the USA so far and I was now offered a post doc position in a basic science lab, it's not surgical research , it is cancer research at a top University. So now I am thinking if I should accept the position after graduation, will it help me even though the lab is not in a surgical department? Or is only the number of publications important?

Didn't know where exactly to post this in the forum
