Elective Tracks and Residency Success
While Trinity School of Medicine's core rotations are localized to its Baltimore program and there are local electives available, we also offer "elective tracks" in Baltimore, Chicago, and middle Georgia. Why Chicago and middle Georgia? Trinity leadership has deep connections in both locations, but we also want to adhere to the same principles that shape our core rotations: give students a place to call home to let them focus on what matters: their education.
Students are invited, as always, to select their own electives to sharpen their skills and broaden their experiences, but for those that do better in a more structured setting, we provide two other "home base" elective locations in addition to our Baltimore opportunity. These proven, focused elective tracks provide set-electives that are tailored to help guide students into specific residencies.
