Also, I'm trying to get involved in some type of undergraduate research at my school, or working under a doctor in a hospital, but I'm kind of nervous about it. In general, for those of you that have done research, how exactly does a research job work? Are you given an experiment to conduct with directions, like in a lab? Or do you design your own? Or are you just doing things like punching numbers in a computer?
I'd love to hear about any of yall's experiences with shadowing and research. Thanks! :) :)
