·         Pass the multiple-choice exam associated with each course ending with a cumulative score of 75% or greater


Specific Features of this Selective:

This elective web-based rotation will utilize scientifically researched and approved modules on the topics of Dermatology, Electrocardiography, Radiology and Genetics. The course directors will provide instruction to students regarding the way in which the online modules can be accessed and navigated. Because this course is “portable”, it is intended to provide students with a valuable educational experience during one of the three months of the senior year in which residency interviews are most numerous. Students may therefore, complete their assigned courses from any Internet accessible location. After completion of all portions of the assigned course, students will take a multiple choice exam ending with a cumulative score of 75% or greater.
