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.

For the 2021-22 academic year, away rotations resume no earlier than August 1, 2021. For more information, please refer to guidelines by the Coalition for Physician Accountability released on 1/25/2021 and the FAQs. We will accept visiting students in a very limited capacity.

In Person Rotations

Visiting students attending US LCME accredited medical schools are required to use the AAMC Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) 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 internationally-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 medical students attending a domestic medical institution only.

Elective Rotation Dates

Our academic calendar is divided into 13 four-week modules across the year.
