Our program offers 3 optional tracks that begin in PGY-3 year and do not extend the length of residency. Residents who complete these tracks will receive a certificate upon completion of their residency. Track requirements and expectations can be found in the resident handbook.

Past international electives have taken place in Rwanda, Kenya, Dominican Republic, American Samoam, and most recently, Ecuador. Residents are encouraged to create their own itinerary. 

Clinician Educator Track (CET)

This track allows residents to focus on learning how to teach by both attending and leading seminars focused on medical education.

    Additional opportunities
    Two residents per academic year will be funded to attend The Principles of Medical Education Conference each spring.

    Research Track

    Residents have the option of dedicating the majority of their elective time to a continuous block of clinical or basic science research. The details can be negotiated on an individual basis during PGY-1 year with the program director.
