A selection of short electives may be offered at each site to interested RVU students. These electives may cover topics just touched upon in the normal curriculum and/or may involve current hot topics in medical training. Some examples include Medical Spanish, History and Medicine, and Literature and Medicine. All students in good academic standing are eligible to sign up for offered electives. Course titles, descriptions, and registration information will be announced prior to the start of each semester. Classes will be approximately 8-16 hours in length, may occur at any time outside of the normal curriculum (i.e. evenings and weekends), and will be graded pass/fail. These electives are offered through the departments of Tracks and Special Programs.
To note: Elective options may vary by campus location.
