2019-2020 Electives

July is fast approaching, and we are looking towards completing our schedule.

As you will be starting the academic year on an elective, please list at least three elective choices in order of preference.

Please note that 2 week electives are now an option. We can also try to extend some of these electives to the full month if desired.

Please remember that we have never done some of these rotations, and as such, they may not quite be ready for July. We will do our best.

If there is a rotation you are interested in that is not listed, please ask and we will do our best to accommodate.
