Visiting Students Instructions & Application

The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is not accepting on-site visiting students for the 2020-21 academic year, except we may consider taking a visiting student in the limited circumstance where the student's medical school does not have a specialty department in which the student wishes to match.  Students who fit this limited exception must have their Dean or Registrar send a signed letter on school letterhead demonstrating:

  1. How the exception applies to you; and
  2. What specialty department you are seeking.

to: with the subject line: VISITING STUDENT EXCEPTION APPLIES. Even where the exception applies, each department may still choose not to host an on-site visiting student at its discretion.​


The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is looking into creating virtual visiting student electives for the 2020-21 academic year.  Please check back for more information on virtual elective offerings.
