Indian Health Service Elective

The Indian Health Service (IHS) is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services. The IHS provides health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives. Electives through the IHS are excellent but require a significant amount of advanced planning.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students may seek approval for IHS electives through Suzanne Sarfaty, M.D., Director of International Health Programs BUSM. However, the IH Program at BUSM does not award travel grants for IHS electives.

Please refer to the IHS web site for more details: Medical Student Clerkship Recruiters.
