The International Elective is an elective experience available to students who have completed their third year core rotations or with approval by the Assistant/Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs. This elective will expose the student to both public health and direct clinical experience in a variety of settings (may be within the US or abroad).

This elective allows students to see the depth and breadth of medicine (any specialty) through the global/international lens.
