Domestic Visiting Student Program

The University of North Carolina School of Medicine’s Visiting Student Program offers those who attend AAMC Member Schools the opportunity to participate in educational, engaging and challenging clinical electives experiences.  We offer experiences with UNC Health Care in Chapel Hill as well as with affiliated hospitals throughout North Carolina in cities such as Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington.  Participating students must be in the final year of medical school at the time the elective commences.  Each elective is four weeks in duration. Students may take up to a maximum of two electives per academic year depending on a space-available basis. It is not always possible to accommodate students from other institutions; however, every effort will be made to fulfill your elective request.

Our office is dedicated to guiding you through the application process, and serving as a helpful resource during your stay in Chapel Hill.  We understand that your final year of medical school is a very busy year, and we want to make planning your elective at UNC as easy as possible.

For your convenience, we've included a lot of information on our website .  Please take a moment and look over all of the helpful links and feel free to contact the Visiting Student Coordinator with any questions that you may have.
