Visiting Student Electives

The Clinical Medicine Committee has established a policy and procedure for fourth year students from Liaison Committee of Medical Education (LCME) accredited US and Canadian medical schools who are interested in taking an elective at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.

  • As a matter of policy, we offer an elective to a visiting student only after our own students have been assigned. 
  • All required immunizations must be complete (and included in your VSLO Application) before your application can be processed. 
  • ALL visiting student applications MUST be processed through the Office for Student Affairs.Arrangements may never be made solely with the elective supervisor.

SPECIAL NOTE: 3/12/2020

“The University of Virginia School of Medicine is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation. All acceptances are contingent on University and School of Medicine policies on visiting students at the time of the rotation.” Thank you!
