Student as a Researcher: A Perspective of a Saudi Medical Student

Author(s):Amro K. Bin Abdulrahman*

Research is one of the primary critical factors in exploring new knowledge. In my first year of medical school, I never thought students could conduct high-quality research. The lesson I have learned is that students should not underestimate their abilities. As with proper training and practice, they can be excellent researchers. Also, another lesson that I have learned is that one should always try to be opportunistic and take the initiative in research. This paper will provide a summary of the potential benefits of researching as a student, the challenges of research in undergraduate medical school, the steps to go through an IRB process in some institutes, the steps toward starting a new research project, a summary of the practical tips for learning research skills, authors’ order criteria, rules for an excellent corresponding author, the requirements of a good mentor, the standards of a good mentee, and a summary of the practical tips to publish in high-impact journals and critical messages. In conclusion, a student should know that research is a skill, so practice is necessary. Remember that research is a passion; once you learn it, you will enjoy it! Always give yourself a protected time to write a manuscript, write research ideas or follow up for publication.
