Senior Electives

Our senior electives are highly sought not only by M4 students at Feinberg, but also by senior medical students from around the country.


Schedules for fourth-year students interested in a career in obstetrics and gynecology are set up individually. A subspecialty elective may need to be taken during the summer or fall of the senior year to better prepare the student for advanced graduate training. Since places in the subspecialty electives are limited, students should carefully review long-term goals with their adviser as early as possible to allow for maximum flexibility in scheduling.

Please note: You must speak to Drs. Garcia or Goldsmith before contacting a faculty member. To set up a meeting with Drs. Garcia or Goldsmith, please contact clerkship coordinator Jamillah Collins. After an interview, your career advising coordinator will either concur with your selection or advise you to speak with a faculty member.

Add/drop of a course less than the 30-day-to-start date of clerkship requires a signature of approval from the course director. Dr. Garcia OR Dr. Goldsmith must receive a copy of the signed form from the student and approve the request.
