Medical Specialty Electives

All interns complete at least one six-month (one day per week) specialty rotation. These rotations occur during the six months that interns are not placed on the Inpatient Psychiatric Units. As noted above, an additional six-month specialty rotation is an option for the elective rotation. It should be noted that consultation and treatment skills are similar with the different medical populations, though the clinical issues may vary. Interns choose from the following, although not all are guaranteed to be offered each year:

Allergy and Immunology

Behavioral Pain Medicine

Behavioral Sleep Medicine


Early Childhood Behavioral Health

Endocrinology and Diabetes


Gender Health

Hematology, Oncology and BMT

Mood Disorders


Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine

Solid Organ Transplant

Trauma and Burn Surgery
