Longitudinal Elective Opportunities

Provides medical students the opportunity to take an elective offered for two or four weeks credit that spans across several months and in many instances more than a single academic year starting during the pre-clerkship phase in the M1 or M2 year. Credit for completion of these electives is applied during the fourth year. While students may apply for consideration to more than one longitudinal elective, students are restricted to enrolling in only ONE longitudinal elective. Students applying to a longitudinal elective should be in good academic standing. 

Longitudinal electives may include activities in the third and/or fourth year and, therefore, can be taken concurrently with any type of elective including acting internship (AI), intensive clinical experiences (ICE), general elective or part-time elective. Priority will be attending the AI, ICE, and general elective over longitudinal elective activities as students may not miss any components of one elective in order to complete requirements of overlapping elective.

For additional information about longitudinal electives, please contact Amy Guiot, the M4 Elective Director at
