Visiting Students

We welcome requests from U.S. medical school students for fourth-year clinical electives at any of the hospitals or institutions affiliated with the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

Beginning June 1, 2020, we will accept visiting students in a very limited capacity due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

In Person Rotations

Visiting students attending US LCME accredited medical schools are required to use the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities service (VSLO) to apply in order to take fourth year clinical electives at any of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences school’s affiliated hospitals or institutions.

The tremendous demand for educational experiences by students’ trained elsewhere, especially foreign-trained students far exceeds our ability to accommodate them. Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences therefore, established a policy that will keep open visiting student opportunities for domestic medical students only.
