KCUMB's Office of Community Clinical Education administers all student clinical training programs offered through the KCUMB curriculum.
The electives program prepares students for clinical practice through elected experiences that complement and extend the training gained in required core clerkships. These elected experiences will facilitate broad-based reflection on career goals and choice while also enhancing skills in patient assessment, evaluation and treatment.
Electives are generally completed as full-block experiences and are awarded five semester credits. Students may obtain special permission to participate in up to two two-week electives and be awarded 2.5 semester credits for each experience.
