Clinical Vs. Non-Clinical Research Experience

Recommended Posts


While I understand that research is not necessary to get into Canadian Medical Schools, I've still heard that it is always a benefit when applying. That being said, do medical schools show a preference for clinical vs. non-clinical research? 

Thanks in advance!

there is so much diversity in the applicant pool and their ECs that I would agree that there are basically no requirements etc like that. 

Just do what you like to do, work hard at it, and achieve some success in it. 

...and be able to talk about why you did it, why it was important to you, and what you learned from it (also be able to ELI5 the research you were involved in LOL). My perspective changed quick once I met my class this year and realized people’s experiences are so completely different, research included.
