1.5 years of preclinicals and 3rd year. (4th year of med school is mainly for people considering specialties + interviews and vacation.)
Would have to include built in residency placement, eg some primary care place that would otherwise go unfilled.
Let's be honest, there's a lot of filler in medical school that could be cut or compressed without sacrificing quality.
