Default Clinical Research

Is it worthwhile doing research under someone with PhD (ie surgery, sleep medicine) in a University hospital for USCE?

It is certainly worthwile to do research.
However, research does not count as USCE (=US clinical experience)!

its better to do under an MD ..becoz

1.once u develop a good rapport..he/she might allow you to shadow- so u can observe as a part of the schedule..

2.he/she will have some contacts in some other residency programs...which might help u to fetch few ivs or in the same program..

3.LOR will be a strong one becoz they know how difficult it is for imgs like us to get residency...so they will write a very good n a strong LOR especially if u r on a volunteer position..
