Research in Non-Relevant Specialty

By Non-Relevant field I mean.. if you plan to apply in Internal Medicine then fields like General Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Pathology are non-relevant for you. If you plean to apply in Surgery then fields like Cardiology, Rhematology, Hematology are non-relevant for you.

It is always advisable to have research exprience in the specialty of your choice; research experience in your specialty of choice helps you greatly not only during residency interviews but also during fellowship interviews.

But if you dont find research in the specialty of your choice than you can always try doing research in some non-relevant specialty. Always remember if there is not a disadvantage of something....there is always some advantage...obviously your research is better than no research....although it would have been better if it had been in the specialty of your choice but there is nothing like 'useless' in the professional world....every achievement/ hard work does pay back sooner or later....

so whatever you can get...grab that opportunity and learn to convert half chances to complete ones....always remember....every experience in life teaches a useful lesson for the future experiences of life....so they are not wasted...they carry the same importance as your school carried for your college and your college carried for ur medical college... nothing is useless....never run away from any experience....grab whatever you can get and then have faith in yourself and your hard work....always remember.....chances are not available....they are always....and if you find one...dont miss it....and if you made use of one....never regret it, it can never be 'useless'! Go for everything u can get....best of luck!

thanks greatly appreciate it

OK.............

 Umar,
  1. tell me whether you indicate that journal is indexed or not in CV ?
 2. also, you meant this              "Kolmos, H.J., R.N. Svendsen et al. The surgical team as a source of post-operative wound infections. J. Hosp.Infect.; 35:207-214." This kinda reference format should be used to discribe resreach and publication ?
 3. do you have any idea that doing certification " professional diploma in clinical research (PDCR) " is good idea? if yes how can this be helpful in CV or Residency?
bye and tc............

1. I don't think so... 2.
