Summer is still a bit far off , particularly with holidays looming ahead of us. I've been wondering, though, what I should so do the summer between 1st and 2nd year. My school has 2 1/2 months off, which I think is typical. MS1s: do you know yet what you're going to be doing? Other med students: do you have any interesting experiences to share? I know people do things like research or primary care preceptorships, but I would particularly like to hear about public health or health policy internships or time spent abroad.
