    Gap year humanities/non-STEM opportunities that are not service?

    I'm not particularly interested in the conventional options available for pre-med gap years (e.g. biomedical/clinical research, volunteering, clinical work, etc.), which means that the resources available to me are also fairly limited, and I'm not quite sure where to even start. My personal...
