Virtual Elective

Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program

Virtual Med-Peds Elective

Since we know there are some students unable to experience med-peds electives in person,
our med-peds program offers 2-week virtual electives for interested medical students to expose them to the med-peds combined specialty. Each 2-week elective features a cohort of students around the country (limited to five) working with our med-peds faculty and residents leading topic and case based educational activities as well as individualized mentorship sessions with program leadership, self-directed learning and independent activities within your student group.
Faculty Oversight: Dr. Himani Divatia, D.O. (Associate Program Director Med-Peds; Program Director TY; Med-Peds Hospitalist)
