Electives Information

Electives | 3 electives at 6 credit hours each or a total of 18 elective credit hours

Three elective rotations, each 4 weeks, are required during Individualization Phase.  At least two should be clinical experiences (please note that pathology, radiology are considered clinical experiences). Only one elective credit earned in Foundation or Application Phase may be applied toward the Individualization Phase.  Electives also offer students an opportunity to visit programs that they may want to get to know for residency. 
VSAS is the system by which students apply for a rotation at a different medical school.
