Default 5-7 month CV gap. Does it affect my residency application?

I am an FMG. I graduated first week of July 2018. My internship doesn't start until December or maybe even February depending on the placement. That's how it is in my country. So now I'll have a good 5-7 months gap in my CV. Is this considered a gap? Since I really don't have a choice in the matter... Will it be a disadvantage on my residency application? If it is then how can I avoid it? What can I do from now till December to bridge this gap? I need something light so I can focus on step 1.
