Electives

In addition to the wide range of elective rotations that we already know about, residents can create their own rotations tailored to meet their educational needs, including international and rural rotations as well as complementary and/or alternative medicine. Residents have progressively more time for electives each year of training with a great deal of flexibility in their third year.
