Resources for Medical Students and Young Physicians

 

Many Medical Universities and affiliated Hospitals across the United States offer Elective Clerkship rotations to International Medical Students. Most of these rotations are for students in the final year of their school/college year.

Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has launched Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) Program which enables Medical Students to pursue short-term leaning opportunities in the affiliated US Hospitals. Please refer to AAMC website to look for affiliated programs and catalog of available electives.

 

Following is the list of some of the programs who do not participate in AAMC VSLO initiative. Their requirements do change with time so please confirm with respective University/Program.
