Research is generally not a requirement for entering health professional schools, however many students participate in some form of research during their undergraduate years (particularly pre-meds). While it is not recommended to do research simply to “look good” on your application, there are many benefits:

  • Exposure to a different part of science
  • Understand the relationship between research and how it applies to your specific health profession
  • Cultivate a strong mentorship with your P.I. (and potentially get a letter of evaluation)
  • Expand your network – oftentimes research can lead to other exciting opportunities (i.e. jobs, shadowing, etc.)
