Research program > med school?
My professor extended an opportunity to join him in a research program. Is it worth delaying applying to med school to gain field experience?
- Gayle Squires expert Hi Alexander. Great to hear that your professor thinks highly of your work! In terms of the timing of your med school applications, it depends on what type of program you're interested in (MD vs. MD/PhD), the strength of your candidacy (school, GPA, related healthcare experience), and the types of schools you're interested in. Are you interested in the research itself or are you doing it to bolster your application? Happy to work with you as I help many applicants think through issues like these all the time.
