Fourth Year

Students in the fourth year have opportunities for additional exposure in pediatrics through a number of electives, including a subinternship.

The courses are designed for more in depth exposure to the different pediatric subspecialties. They are of value to people pursuing careers that will include the care of children as well as for those students who want to broaden the medical education.
