Medical Student Electives
We offer a variety of medical student educational opportunities at both our Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) and Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) campuses.
Our elective rotations provide students with a unique insight into the functional approach to patient care. Students receive training on physiatric evaluation and are exposed to fundamental concepts of the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) through a variety of inpatient and outpatient experiences in the Department of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine.
Teaching on service is a mixture of clinical care (in both inpatient and outpatient settings), as well as lecture-based didactics, and student-directed learning. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of didactic activities including sports medicine journal club and hands-on physical examination and diagnostic ultrasound workshops.
