Advanced Electives

Advanced Electives can be non-clinical or clinical in nature and are designed to expose students to a wide-range of topics and concepts in medicine distinct from traditional clinical rotations. Advanced Electives courses fulfill a “competency/interest-driven” requirement and are graded as pass/fail. Most are offered in 4-week rotations, although some are offered longitudinally, such as Students as Teachers and Med School 101. Current AEs offered in the curriculum are below.
