Policies for Visiting Students

As a visiting student, you are not enrolled at Northwestern University and are not considered a matriculated student. You do, however, have the same duties and responsibilities as a medical student and are expected to be treated as an active participant on a rotation, the same as a Northwestern final-year medical student would be treated. Visiting Students are expected to comply with all applicable policies for current full-time medical students at Feinberg School of Medicine.

Be prepared for your time at Feinberg by acquainting yourself with the Visiting Student Guide.

Prior to beginning a rotation, visiting students are required to complete an online registration verifying that they have read, understand and agree to the Visiting Student Program policies, including the Needlestick Policy, Safe and Healthy Learning Environment, Dress Code and Social Media Use.
