Student Electives

UPMC Hamot offers a wide range of elective rotations. We provide medical students with clinically oriented experiences in a variety of patient care settings. While your elective rotations will have a community hospital focus, you will have the added perspective of UPMC Hamot’s tertiary referral service. To augment your rotations, you will be required to attend conferences, clinics and rounds pertinent to each elective.

While at UPMC Hamot, you will also have the opportunity to participate in daily teaching rounds and discussions with emergency medicine, orthopaedic, neurology, otolaryngology, and clinical pharmacy residents. In addition, you will have access to UPMC Hamot’s medical library.

UPMC Hamot has free student housing available for students who qualify. Contact Annmarie Kutz at kutza@upmc.edu with eligibility inquiries.
