No, I haven’t yet tried to get published. Our third year project is one that most students try to get published, but ours had to be cancelled at the end of this year. I haven’t really given publication much thought beyond that.

I feel like getting publications will be more significant later on in your career as you learn more medicine and experience more of the practical aspects of Medicine, research at that stage is probably likely to be more relevant too. That being said, if you do manage to get a publication as a student it’ll count as a point as part of your foundation applications (you can get 2), which is something, but not really very significant.
