Each semester, the McGovern Center sponsors a number of blue book electives (also called extracurricular electives), optional short courses that are designed to enrich and enhance the medical student’s core curriculum experience. While blue books are primarily open to UT medical students, some of these electives have been made available to students of other schools, including UTHealth’s Schools of Dentistry, Nursing and Public Health, and Baylor College of Medicine.
- Arts and Resilience
- Culture Conversations
- Deconstructing Dementia

- Humanities in Film
