Graduating in April of 2021, then entering my gap year.

I will be applying to med school starting in June of 2021. During my gap year, I will continue with my job as a Caregiver at Memory Lane Assisted Living (in Ypsilanti, MI). I will also probably finish the current research project that I've been working on during my senior year in the MCDB department. After finishing this, I may look for research in a different area... Lastly, I may search for a new job more clinically related (ie: Medical Scribe).
