Visiting Student Electives


The University of Virginia School of Medicine WILL NOT offer in-person clinical rotations for the 2020-2021 Academic Year, as we will be following the CPA (Coalition for Physicians Accountability) recommendations. We will be cancelling any rotations for Visiting Medical Students that have already been scheduled. Please stay safe and stay well!  

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.
