Curriculum Vitae Gap in education

In my country there isn't a designated undergrad, med school separation, it's all done as one; you matriculate as a med student and it all goes from there.

I finished that "undergrad-like" training in one school, took a 3 year break and entered "medical school" at a different university. However, my medical school training was not interrupted, it was completed within the time frame established.

Does my interruption even count as an interruption for this question on ERAS even though my country doesn't clearly designate undergrad/grad levels? In that time period I worked to pay for my school. I've been working throughout my whole adult life. Will this affect my chances greatly?
