Visiting Medical/Osteopathic Student Program

The 2015-16 information continues to be updated weekly as new courses become available.  

We are decentralizing our program this year, and will continue to add departmental information for each specialty as it becomes available.  Please do not contact Student Affairs during this transition as we will not have the answers to your questions.The various departments are currently being trained to use VSAS and process applications from non-VSAS schools as well.   They are looking forward to working with you.

You may scroll down and review this site for general information that may answer many of your questions.

The Visiting Medical Student Program enriches both the Brody School of Medicine and the visiting medical student. Applicants must be 4th year students 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.


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.
