    How much time off between 4th year and starting? If matched what do you have to do in transition?

    Usually after they graduate, but before PGY2.

    Depends. I've heard of people being done as early as April, but generally sometime in late May/early June is typical.

    Most people use the time to travel, get married, move, read Harrison's, freak out, just chill...

    Most places will have orientation mid to late June.
