I am graduating medical school in May, starting residency July 1. However, I have a month off in May as well, conceivably leaving me with 2 months off before residency starts. I want to remain at my home program, so will hopefully not be moving. Any ideas on what I can do with my free time? I am planning a 1 week vacation, but if I sit around the rest of the time, I will go crazy! Some things I have thought of so far: 1. I am an EMT, so I have thought of working some shifts during that time (a doctor working as an EMT would look kind of funny though). I have considered trying to use the time to challenge the NREMT-P exam to become a paramedic. 2. Research? 3. Read Rosen's or Tintanelli's? (yeah right) Any ideas on other things I could do with myself for 2 months would be greatly appreciated!
