Visiting MD Students

Applicants for 2014-2015:

The Feinberg School of Medicine has adopted the VSAS (Visiting Student Application Service) system for receiving and processing visiting student applications.

The VSAS system is not designed to process applications from students attending international schools. By adopting this new system, we are forced to make changes with regards to the types of applicants we will accept. Beginning with the 2013 – 2014 academic year we can only accept applications from students who attend the following types of institutions:

  • United States medical school:
    Refers to any LCME-accredited medical school located in the United States or Puerto Rico.
  • Osteopathic medical school:
    Refers to any AOA-accredited Osteopathic medical school.
  • Selected students from our Global Partner institutions:
    A current list of Partner institutions can be found on the Global Partner application form.

Unfortunately, we can no longer accept applicants from schools located outside the contiguous 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico with the exception of Global Partner institutions.

You can find our institution page on the VSAS website.

Applicants applying via VSAS are also required to review the following pages:
