If a resident wishes to do an away elective that is encouraged and supported. Examples of places where our residents have traveled to for their international electives include Zambia, Cameroon and Central America. Other residents have pursued subspecialty electives such as allergy/immunology at other institutions also. All away rotations are subject to approval by the Med-Peds program director and categorical program director as well as to approval by the graduate medical education office.
