I have a question for all current medical students. I am going to start medical school this fall and was wondering how you changed your sleeping habits once school began. I know in years 3 and 4, our sleeping pattern will really depend on what rotation is currently being done. But i was sort of also concerned about the 1st two years as well. Did it take you guys some time to adjust to the vigors of medical school? How was your sleep affected? Should i start practicing getting less sleep now, so that i will be more used to it once classes begin? - - Nowadays, i usually get eight to eight and half hours of sleep (granted I am not partying or studying late) - - what is a good number for med school??
