Elective Rotation Application Process and Requirements
Students must be enrolled in a LCME, COCA, ADA, CPME, or ARC-PA accredited school in good academic standing.
All fourth year medical students must apply for electives using Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). All approvals, scheduling, and notifications for electives will be communicated through the VSAS website. Please submit your elective requests as early as possible, but at least 60 days prior to your desired start date. Electives will not be confirmed until all required documents are received as listed on the VSAS website.
PLEASE NOTE: Updates to course descriptions are uploaded to the VSAS website annually by the end of February. We will begin to accept elective applications for the following academic year annually in March. Applications are processed in April.
