Visiting Medical/Osteopathic Student Program


Academic Year August 2014 - January 2015

(The program does not offer rotations from February through July each year.)

The Visiting Medical Student Program enriches both the Brody School of Medicine and the visiting medical student. Applicants must be in good academic standing, be actively pursuing the Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree and have completed all third year core clerkships by the start of a scheduled elective.

Due to the high volume of applicants, please review the application information below

 and through VSAS rather than calling or emailing our office.


VSAS Information


The Brody School of Medicine uses VSAS, the Visiting Student Application Service, to receive visiting fourth year medical student applications. To apply, complete and submit the electronic VSAS application for your preferred electives.

For more information on VSAS, visit or contact VSAS at .  

Only students enrolled at US LCME or US AOA accredited institutions may use VSAS to submit applications and supporting documents. 

The Brody School of Medicine is listed in VSAS under the letter "T".


General Information:

Visiting medical students will be accommodated only after their applications have been processed first through the Office of Student Affairs.  Acceptance by a department or supervisor does not constitute approval for a visiting student elective.

The Brody School of Medicine's medical students have priority in registering for electives, and visiting students are offered the remaining spots.

Visiting students are permitted a total of 8 weeks at Brody.

Electives are available from August through January of each academic year

All approved visiting medical students are required to adhere to the BSOM M4 Academic Calendar which is found on the "4th Year Curriculum" page (see link in the left margin).


If accepted, there is a $70 non-refundable Processing Fee for the first elective only.
