As of the opening of the 2013-2014 academic year, the Northwestern University 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 regard to the types of applicants we will accept. Currently, we only accept applications from students who attend the following types of institutions:
- United States medical school
LCME-accredited medical school located in the United States
- Osteopathic medical school
Any AOA-accredited Osteopathic medical school
- Selected students from our Global Partners institutions
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.
