Visiting Students

The fourth year medical student rotation at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is four weeks in duration.  The rotation is one week of inpatient consultations and three weeks outpatient clinics.

Orientation is scheduled the first day of each rotation at UNC Dermatology at 8:00 a.m. at 410 Market Street, Suite 400, in Southern Village, Chapel Hill.

In addition to clinical requirements, students are required to attend conferences.  Grades are based on faculty and resident evaluations, end of rotation test, and performance during consult week.


Students must also mail/fax/email the following four items to the Department of Dermatology (see address, fax number and email below).

1.  Medical school transcript for all coursework during years 1 and 2 (or Basic Sciences) and
year 3

2.  USMLE or equivalent Part One Board Scores

3.  Letter stating which rotation dates are requested in preferred order. (See rotation dates
.  Include in this letter a statement saying whether or not you are interested in
being considered for UNC's Dermatology Residency Program.

4.  Current Curriculum Vitae

Once these items are received, they are reviewed by Drs. Chris Sayed and Dean Morrell, Directors of Education, in early April.  The applicant is informed of acceptance as soon as a decision is made.  If the applicant is approved for a rotation, and after confirmation of this rotation from the Department, he or she must apply online through VSAS at  The Department will inform Student Affairs which applicant has been approved.  (This includes In-state applicants.)  Out-of-state applicants are required to pay a $50 application fee to the UNC School of Medicine.

Due to the popularity of our program, we are only able to accommodate 1 visiting student per rotation.  We will accept more than 1 visiting student if space is available after UNC's drop/add dates.
