Elective Opportunities

The Department of Medicine offers a wide diversity of clinical elective rotations for medical students in their final years of medical school. Students need to have completed their core Internal Medicine clerkship prior to participating in most of our electives. While our core Internal Medicine clerkship is limited to students from Case School of Medicine, we welcome visiting students to participate in our clinical electives.

Acting Internship

We offer a 4 week Acting Internship (AI), which is a rigorous inpatient opportunity to hone your clinical skills as the primary patient provider. The student is part of a medical team, and is given advanced patient care responsibilities as their skill level progresses throughout the rotation.

Division Electives

Each Division within the Department of Medicine offers 2 or 4 week clinical electives. Our clinical elective rotations for medical students are outlined in detail on the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine elective website and on our main University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Medical Student website but are also listed here.

How to Apply

We ask that non-CWRU visiting students DO NOT contact departments directly. If you have any questions, please email the visiting student coordinator, Erin Zawolowycz, at Erin.Zawolowycz@uhhospitals.org.
