How to catch-up after a year off

    Hi everyone!

    I will be taking a year off between 3rd and 4th year for research, and I'm worried about being rusty upon my return to 4th year clinical rotations.

    Do any of you folks who took a year off (for non-clinical activities) have any advice on how I can refresh my knowledge in the few months before starting again? Was there something in particular that you felt was particularly helpful/not helpful in the process?

    How much did you forget during your "non-clinical" year?
