Prospective Visiting Students

Thank you for your interest in completing an away rotation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Each year, the Visiting Student Program at Feinberg School of Medicine receives thousands of applications for a limited number of elective rotation spaces. Eligible participants must be full-time, fourth-year medical students in good standing at LCME- or AOA-accredited U.S. medical schools. Third-year students who have completed their core clerkships in medicine, surgery, pediatrics and obstetrics/gynecology are also eligible to apply.

Due to the volume of visiting student applications we have each year, we are not able to respond to your phone calls. If you have questions, please review our FAQ or email Please do not contact faculty or administrative staff directly to attempt to arrange clinical experiences.

With the exception of Global Partner students, applications are only accepted through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS), which will open for the 2021-2022 academic year on April 15, 2021.

Please read through our website for more information on applying to complete an elective rotation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
