It's nice to take a summer job with very little responsibility and limited work hours.  That's the best way to enjoy the summer.

If you want to do research plan early because your time in the summer is short and if you don't hit the ground running you won't get much done. That said not doing anything "productive" in the summer is not a bad option.

I thought that doing some informal shadowing (rounding attending meetings going to resident/fellow teaching sessions) was a great way to explore fields that we don't necessarily get a lot of direct exposure to in clinics (e.g. ophthalmology, hepatology). It's low pressure but still interesting and affords you more scheduling freedom than a research project.
