Electives and Pathway Structure

In the months leading to the final year of medical school, students in consultation with faculty and Student Affairs advisors, will choose a Pathway based on specialty choice to complement the core requirements of the M4 curriculum.  Each Pathway includes additional student choice to choose from a list of selective courses for at least four of the sixteen weeks to further link curriculum to student career goals.  Students may switch from one Pathway to another with the approval of their OSA Advisor, but must complete the requirements for at least one Pathway in order to graduate.
