Default Study

Yes, of course its the right time to start studying. As a doctor already, you will know a lot of the diseases and associated symptoms/labs/hallmarks, so you will already have a head start. Things you might forget are microbiology, medication mechanisms and biochemistry. There is always time to review, but you should definitely schedule your test and make a study schedule (check our Cramfighter). Also, I would recommend signing up for Picmonic and keeping medical information fresh in your mind!
