Specialties Guide

The purpose of the Specialty Elective Guide is to provide a list of elective courses recommended for medical students with a career interest in a particular specialty.

The intended users of the guide are faculty advisors and students in planning elective course options during the clinical years.

This guide has been updated as of April 2013 with input from the relevant Chairs and Program Directors. Therefore, these recommendations represent Stritch's advice from its most appropriate faculty.

Electives listed as "Highly Recommended" are considered very important, while electives listed as "Recommended" are important but less essential. Note that recommendations are made in some specialties for services on the required Ward and ICU Sub-Internships.

This guide is an appendix to the Elective Catalog which includes descriptions of all electives, as well as all the policies and procedures for elective registration.
