Research - type of supervisor?

Recommended Posts

Is it more important for CaRMS to do research with a supervisor who is an MD?

Or does it matter?

I'm thinking maybe for CaRMS reference letters it's required that they are a clinician/practicing physician?

-------edit to add:

Thank you all for replying, I think I might have had two questions here..

Does the type of supervisor matter for research experience or publications - will they differentiate between students who have worked with clinician physicians (MD) vs. researchers in medical science (PhD)? If you get a pub, does it matter who supervised?

And then I guess the reference letters was its own question - likely these are people you did clerkship rotations with and not necessarily research supervisors?
