My first year of my physics/pre-med program is almost done (studying at UoWestern ontario.) I have heard some students say that they are going to pass on research so that they may take more courses to finish off their degree a year earlier(by taking 3 summers of courses to finish a 4 year program in only 3.) Now that summer is only months away, should i concider this approach and go right into my master's program or enter medical school.Will my graduate school(for physics) prefer that i do some research? I'm concidering this since im a non-trad student. I graduated last year(21) from a community college in electromechanical engineering technology. Now 22 i'm looking into my future and see myself doing either 2 things.try and get a academic career going in physics or go to medical school. I would rather take the time to study then do research if i do decide to attend medical school. My mind isn't made up just yet, so any feedback would be gladly appreciated.
