Year 4 Electives

Electives are offered at many of our teaching sites throughout the year. Choosing fourth year elective affords students an unparalleled opportunity to apply all they have learned in medical school to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of patients with undifferentiated clinical conditions. Students have a great opportunity to hone their clinical skills, diagnostic and therapeutic reasoning, and procedural skills across virtually all medical disciplines with one-on-one supervision by a faculty member. Due to the steep orientation curve and demanding ED environment, many departments offer only 4 week electives, however some sites are willing to also provide a 2 week elective opportunity.

Objectives

Learning objectives from the Year 3 Clerkship are built upon. In addition, students are encouraged to formulate their own individual learning objectives for their elective.

Eligibility/Application Process

Medical students in their final or penultimate year may apply. Acceptance for out-of-province and international students is site-specific. All students (including those from UBC) must go through the UBC Visiting Student Electives website for approval.

Self-arranged electives are not permitted at UBC.
