The Greenville Health System (GHS) Office of Student Services is pleased to offer elective opportunities for senior medical students interested in Med-Peds. Many of our current Med-Peds residents participated in clinical rotations as visiting students during their fourth year of medical school.
Visiting Elective Rotation Benefits
- Work in our health system.
- Meet our Med-Peds residents and faculty.
- Learn more about the upstate community.
Inpatient and Outpatient Student Electives
- General medical wards
- Pediatric wards
- Adult intensive care
- Pediatric intensive care
- Subspecialty electives in medical or pediatric settings
We do require that students have completed core clerkships in both internal medicine and pediatrics at an LCME accredited institution before taking an elective at GHS. Electives can be taken as month long blocks of adult or pediatric medicine or students may arrange for a combined four-week rotation with two weeks of adult and two weeks of pediatric experience. Month long rotations with our Med-Peds hospitalist group in Greer are possible when one of our Med-Peds residents is there on rotation.
If our residents are not rotating at Greer Memorial during the time you would like to visit, we can make arrangements for you to visit the hospital for a day and meet the Med-Peds faculty there.
