Thank you for your interest in our Visiting Student Program. It is with great pleasure that both MD and Osteopathic students are now able to submit their application through VSAS, the Visiting Student Application Service. Mailed applications will no longer be accepted without permission. Applications must be completed six (6) weeks before the elective start date to be considered eligible for an open seat.
Elective periods are four weeks in length. Occasionally we are able to accept visiting students for two electives (up to eight weeks), on a space-available basis. It is not always possible to accommodate students from other institutions; however, every effort will be made to comply with your request. We discourage students from applying for rotations starting the beginning of July, as there may not be enough time to notify students of an offer before the start of the rotation. However the option is still available.
The ability to apply for electives in VSAS will start April 1st for the 2014-2015 academic year and we recommend that you apply as soon as possible if you plan to attend during the first three blocks. You will receive an email confirmation from the Office of Student Affairs once your application is considered complete or Eligible. Students with missing items will also be notified. No offer will be extended to those who have an incomplete application.
Scheduling for July-Dec with begin on May 27, 2014 and for Jan-April on Nov 3, 2014, after UNC's drop/add period. Applications are reviewed and students will be sent offers on a first-come first-serve basis. Once an offer has been extended and accepted, a $50 non-refundable processing fee will be charged to secure your rotation. We continue to accept applications throughout the academic year.
