Visiting MD Students

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:

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. For more information on VSAS, please vist their website or contact VSAS at or 202-478-9878.
