    M1-M2: most places will have 2-3 months.
    M2-M3: usually about 6 weeks to study for and take Step 1 and have a vacation
    M3-M4: variable.
    Mine doesn't have any official break unless you count letting us off our last M3 rotation on 27 June and starting M4 year on 1 July. We can put one of our vacation months in any month we please though. My first will be November.

    I have been on mine for 5 days and I have never been more bored in my entire life. After always having something to do and then suddenly having nothing, it is a shock to the system.
