Blue Book Electives

Each semester, the McGovern Center sponsors a number of blue book electives (also called extracurricular electives), optional short courses designed to enrich and enhance the medical student’s core curriculum experience. While blue books are open primarily to McGovern Medical School students, some of the McGovern Center’s electives are made available to students of other schools, including UTHealth’s Schools of Dentistry, Nursing, and Public Health, and Baylor College of Medicine.

Questions about the McGovern Center’s blue book electives may be sent to Angela Gomez, EdD, MBA.

If you are a student seeking faculty or Center sponsorship for a series you are developing, please contact Rebecca Lunstroth, JD, or Thomas Cole, PhD.

Please contact the Office of Educational Programs for general questions about blue books, including the process for proposing or renewing an elective. This office maintains an online system containing all available electives for each academic year and through which all proposals for new or returning series are submitted.
