The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry accepts visiting medical and dental students to do electives at our school. For medical students from LCME accredited medical schools in the U.S. and Canada, visiting electives are coordinated through the AAMC’s Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS).
Students from osteopathic schools seeking electives have their requests process through the Office of the Registrar. Dental student electives can be done in the area of dentistry only and are coordinated by the Office of the Registrar.
Students from non-LCME international medical schools can apply for elective experiences and this process is coordinated by the Center for Advocacy, Community Health, Education, and Diversity (CACHED).
Visiting student interested in a residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center should feel free to contact the Residency Director in their field of choice to get assistance in elective choice.
