Elective Distribution Requirement

As with many medical schools, we think the value of electives is to explore a potential specialty and to “round out” your undergraduate experience. Therefore, you may only receive credit for no more than three similar electives. Completion of additional electives, deemed too similar by the respective department to be awarded degree credit, may be done as extra, not-for-credit independent study experiences. You have approximately five blocks of unscheduled time in your schedule.

Emergency Information

Students with a personal crisis should not hesitate to call your emergency contacts at any time.
