All students must complete an adult ambulatory clerkship, an emergency medicine clerkship, an acting internship selective, and a critical care selective.

Of these three required electives in the fourth year, one must be at an MCG‐ affiliated site.
Only one international experience may fulfill the elective requirements for graduation.
Students may only receive graduation credit for one research elective regardless of the length of the experience. A student may do research electives in different areas of interest; however, only one of these electives fulfills the elective requirements for graduation.

The Curriculum Office must approve off‐campus electives for graduation credit.
