I've been asked to precept a 4th year medical student for a non-clinical elective rotation. This will be the first time I will be doing this, but it's great to see that some medical schools are progressive enough to be willing to allow their 4th year medical students to pursue non-traditional elective rotations. When I was in medical school, I really wanted to do an international health elective but I couldn't pull it together because I was busy with wedding plans (I got married immediately following medical school graduation).
Are you a medical student? If you're interested in pursuing a non-clinical elective rotation, you should ask your school to see if they'd approve such an elective. Let me know and perhaps we can generate a list of medical schools (that are open to such ideas) and elective opportunities.
