About Ambulatory Electives

An extensive array of both inpatient and outpatient electives are available during medical residency training to meet individual educational needs and career interests. Categorical residents have electives paired with practice weeks, while Primary Care Track residents have most electives incorporated into their ambulatory long blocks. Some subspecialty fields, including neurology and quality improvement (QI) are required for all residents, while others are required for Primary Care Track residents. In addition to the opportunities listed below, mixed electives (outpatient and inpatient) are available in all of the medical subspecialties.
