Electives and Subspecialty Consults

 

Each resident has several months available each year for electives. Our program offers numerous elective opportunities from which residents may choose. Elective months may be spent performing research, working in a particular outpatient subspecialty clinic of interest, or rounding with subspecialty consult teams. The consult teams allow housestaff to explore other fields in internal medicine and to experience the role of a medical consultant. There is no call during a consult month, and all weekends are free. Outpatient clinics in the medical subspecialties are also included as part of several consult rotations. In addition, interns have the opportunity to explore medical subspecialties through exposure electives. The electives offered in 2-week blocks are designed to provide interns with a broad experience in a subspecialty, with the focus on outpatient aspects of care. The electives in 4-week blocks are designed to provide more in-depth training in an area of medicine for both interns and residents. For additional information about elective options, click here.
