    So I'm about to finish my first year studying medicine in Ireland and I have a question for some. What is the best thing to do that first summer? I have an opportunity to shadow doctors, should I take that? or should I get a job? study for USMLEs? I'm an American that wants to practice in America and I would shadow a doctor in my home town.
    Thanks.

    I did a preceptorship after my first year, and it didn't help me in any way.
    I would recommend doing either:
    1) something fun
    2) something that pays
    3) something fun that pays.
