Third Year Electives

The purpose of the electives program in Third Year is to support the career exploration process for students. Students use third year electives to familiarize themselves with the scope of practice in a medical specialty, typically outside of required clerkships. Interested students also have the option to enroll in a four-week research elective in lieu of a clinical elective. View the 3rd year elective catalog.
