The Selectives section of the Doctoring Curriculum is a collection of small group seminars addressing various topics related to the delivery of health care. Approximately 22 different Selective courses are offered to first year medical students in the second half of the spring semester; all students are required to take a Selective. Topics covered range from year to year. Some examples of this years’ Selectives are the History of Western Medicine, Introduction to Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Health Care Reform, Medical Anthropology, Negotiated Death and Care of the Dying and Medical Spanish. Selectives are scheduled for eight nonconsecutive weeks, with each class session lasting two hours.
