Medical Student Electives

The Department of Dermatology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center / Case Western Reserve University offer clinical electives for its students. These electives are usually fully subscribed by our own students. If they are not filled, students from other universities may apply. Listed below are the electives currently offered by the Department of Dermatology.

Please note, osteopathic students are invited to schedule electives beginning in January of their senior year.

*Students interested in scheduling Derm 4004A are required to have completed a one month dermatology elective.

How to Apply

If you would like to register for any of the above electives, please complete the Visiting Clerkship Application at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine Office of the Registrar. You will receive a confirmation letter from the Registrar's office once your application is complete and all documents are received. In addition, you will receive communication from the Medical Student Credentialing office regarding orientation on your first day of the elective.

If you've already completed a rotation at UH and you've gone through prior orientation, you do not need to complete orientation again. You will receive an email from the Department of Dermatology in advance of your rotation with specifics of each day/week of the rotation. If you do not receive dermatology specific information two weeks prior to the start of your rotation, please contact Kristina Myers in the Department of Dermatology.
