Electives for 4th Year Medical Students
Each student plans his/her electives schedule with the advice
of their college dean and a personally chosen faculty advisor. The proposed
program is then presented
Electives Director for approval. If the Electives Director concurs, the
student may count ward or subspecialty externships, clinical or basic
research, community medicine programs, and individually tailored experiences
for elective credit. The medical school regularly offers a wide variety
of electives. Possibilities for
individual electives are limited only by the student's creativity.
An electives calendar and a timetable for elective selection for each class is made available at the informational meeting held during third year. At that time electives information, which contains descriptions of available electives and includes the administrative procedures for the program, is discussed.
