Research and Publication : How much it helps at NHS or in any Post Graduation in UK?

Hello and Assalamu Alaikum Everyone!!!

As an undergraduate MBBS student many of us wonder how much it would help if we had our own publications on journals like PLoS One, BMJ Open or Springer or any other renowned journals.

Our MBBS Curriculum doesn’t have any specific Research oriented topics or practicals that would necessarily help a student in publishing his/her own paper in a journal, although RFST gives us a little bit taste about publications. Nevertheless, many of the students have engaged themselves in doing researches and also they have developed their skills in STATA or SPSS.

Would all these things help a student in any way at NHS or in gaining any post graduate academic degree in UK?
