  1. Hello everyone. I am a 2nd year medical student with a recently-found interest in a competitive surgical specialty. I want to start racking up some research experience for this specialty but I have no previous research experience and I have no idea where to start. So I have a few questions: 1. How do you find a research supervisor? What are the criteria that I should be looking for when choosing a research supervisor (e.g staff that's on adcom etc.)? 2. Ideally, I would like to match to my home province not the one that I am currently in. Is it feasible/advisable to go with a supervisor from another school? 3. What kind of project should I join? How do I know which projects are publishable (especially before my CaRMS application deadline)? 4. What is the typical time commitment required? Is it feasible to do research with clerkship? 5. What is the goal here - quality or quantity?
