Members don't see this ad.
Do medical schools frown upon an applicant whom graduates with a bachelors a year early to use their 4th year of undergrad in a job setting as a research technician or related position?

I don't think they do, 'cause at least you are making good use of your time. That is exactly what I did and I've been accepted. Just be ready to answer lots of questions about your research (and for the MD/PhDs to try and recruit you into research).

I don't think it will hurt you at all. In fact, it should help.

Overall, I don't think schools really frown on any productive non-educational thing you pursue after school. Whether it is working as a research tech or a teacher or whatever, it only adds to your maturity and "real-world" experience.

Overall i don't think they'll look down upon that. They may want some updated classes to see if you can still handle school though. But other than that, i don't see why it would be bad.
