Away Electives

Arranging Electives Outside the UNC School of Medicine Program ("Away" Rotations)

The purpose of the fourth-year curriculum is to offer a flexible educational experience which can be tailored to the career goals and intellectual interests of each student. Clinical activities are offered as well as opportunities for in depth study and investigation. Approved courses may include educational programs in other schools of the university, in other universities, in other clinical settings in the state, and in foreign countries.

The required fourth-year selectives and the elective courses approved by the respective departments are described on the following pages. In addition, students with special interests may design individual projects in conjunction with faculty sponsors.

All courses must be approved by the student’s Career Goal Advisor prior to the beginning of the course; there are no provisions for retroactive course credit.
