The education credit you qualified for in 2015, if in medical school is the Lifetime Learning Credit. It is a non-refundable credit meaning it will offset taxes owed, but will not result in a refund if there are no taxes due.

If you have any income from 2013, you need to file a return if it is greater than the standard deduction and personal exemption. for that year.
