I will be entering my first year of medical school this coming September and I was wondering if anyone could please provide some guidance on entering medical research. Currently, I do not have a preference for which speciality to go into, therefore, I am not sure which research directions to head into. I have done biological research (as a lab technician) previously, and would like to remain involved during med school (because I enjoy research and it's a great add on to my CV).
Do first years typically get involved in research? Does anyone have suggestions on how to look into/ decide which labs and professors I should approach ... considering that it has to be a reasonable time commitment (not just a few days) and that I don't know which field I am interested in?
