Emergency Medicine Electives

“I completed a two week rotation with the toxicology service at UVA during my fourth year of medical school. I was so impressed by the supportive faculty, positive learning environment, and the awesome city of Charlottesville.”


The Department of Emergency Medicine offers many exciting elective opportunities; some in the Emergency Department itself, some in the Charlottesville area, and some out of the country!  All students are welcome to apply.
