Research experience (for non-science majors)

<p>From what I have read it seems that one should do research if a premed. It seems like most students (probably because most are science majors) are doing LAB research. But say I'm a philosophy or humanities major specializing in bioethics and want to attend medical school for an MD to become a physician. I'm great with science but the humanities intrest me more. Is reserach in say bioethics with a proffessor just as good as science research in a lab with a proffesor? If I were to publish in bioethics journals, would that make the same impression as publishing in a biology journal (or wherever it is that bio research gets its attention)?</p>

<p>Opinions are welcome, experience from non-science majors would be more than welcome. Thanks.</p>

<p>It's not so much getting published and/or doing research in a science-related field (as far as I know). It's more for the benefit of understanding how to pose questions and investigate them to (hopefully) find answers. Do research in something that interests you...you'll find it much more beneficial than trying to fit in by working in a science lab just because everyone else is.</p>

<p>It's like picking a major; do what interests you. Right, thanks I'll do that. By the way are you a premed or med student?</p>

<p>I agree with nate's advice, do what interests you. I did research on insect behavior back during undergrad.</p>

<p>I suppose if you want to label me you could call me pre-med, but I don't really know what I want to do. :)</p>

<p>Okay, thanks...Yeah I'm not 100 percent sure on what I want to study. I think I'll figure out. My first year courses will be the same regardless of what I decide to do later. Thanks.</p>
