Academic Opportunities

Optional Enrichment Electives (OEE) are elective courses offered in addition to the regular, required and elective/selective curriculum, which the student elects to take. OEE are offered through the School of Medicine with GSN students participating in some courses. Participation in these courses appears on the transcript by name of course.

An example of an OEE that GSN students participate in is Correctional Health. The Correctional Health optional enrichment elective provides students a greater understanding of the basic principles of correctional health and unique health concerns for incarcerated populations, in both adult and youth correctional settings. The course aims to decrease stigma surrounding the correctional population and increase future providers' comfort working with this population.
