The balance of the student's clinical training consists of clinical electives. These electives are selected according to the student's particular interests, helping them get oriented toward their choice of practice and post-medical education. During clinical training, students are required to complete reading assignments, take on-line examinations in their current rotation and to participate in regular on-line chat sessions and forums.
