Third Year Students Contact:

The third year clerkship is open only to medical students from the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine.

P.O. Box 32861
Department of Internal Medicine

We currently offer the following fourth-year electives to both UNC-Chapel Hill and external US allopathic medical students:

  • Ward Medicine Acting Intern
  • Medical ICU Acting Intern
  • Elective in Gastroenterology Consultation 
  • Elective in Pulmonary Consultation
  • Elective in Cardiology Consultation
  • Rafting
    Elective in Infectious Diseases Consultation
  • Elective in Neurology Consultation
  • Elective in General Medical Consultation

All prospective students will have to submit an application for review and rotations are filled then on an first-come, first-served basis. Housing may be applied for through the University of North Carolina but must be filled by students from UNC-Chapel Hill first. Prospective students may need to seek private sources for housing if all spaces are filled; references will be made available. In addition, there may be additional costs to utilize Carolinas Medical Center sponsored housing.

Due to limited space and capacity,  we are only able to accept applications from students of United States allopathic medical schools at this time. We regret that we are currently unable to accept applications from students of osteopathic medical schools or international medical schools.

We are also unable to offer observerships to graduates of International Medical Schools, due to limited capacity.
