"Bench to Bedside" Electives

Any elective with clinical relevance may be a Bench to Bedside elective, subject to approval from the Program Directors. This list will be updated annually as new courses with clinical relevance may be offered and students are encouraged to suggest courses that they think will enrich their GTMS education.
