Clinical Electives

We offer clinical electives in many sub-specialties of medicine. These are elective programs and do not meet requirements for core clinical clerkships. All electives are 4 weeks in length. Students may apply for a maximum of two 4 week electives but these electives must be in different specialties. Click on the links below to learn more about a specific elective.

Please note that we do not place students in June and July block rotations.  We begin placing students again in August.  If you are applying for an elective in August we will not be able to place you in the requested electives until the Yale students finalize their schedule in early May. We will do our best to let you know about acceptance as soon as possible. The summer months are extremely competitive. Click here for List of Summer Electives for International Students.

The following electives are available from September through May.
