Fourth-Year Electives

In addition to completing the required Phase Three rotations, medical students at IU School of Medicine have opportunities to tailor their final year by completing six four-week electives to round out their training and experiences. These electives include a minimum of three clinical electives. The additional three electives can be in the areas of professional development, advanced science research or clinical practice to enhance each student’s skill set. Up to three away electives are also allowed as part of the required six.
