MS1 and MS2 Elective Opportunities

First- and Second-Year Electives

Electives are optional learning experiences offered to first- and second-year students in good academic standing. The UCR SOM faculty-led electives are outside of the standard curriculum of the School of Medicine that allow students to create a customized, independent experience.

Electives are generally taught in small groups and cover a variety of specialized topics including medical Spanish, humanities, ultrasound medicine, nutrition and more. A current list of opportunities is made available to first- and second-year students via our learning management system, Canvas.
