Visiting Student Program
The University of North Carolina School of Medicine’s Visiting Student Program offers students in their final year of medical school the opportunity to participate in educational, engaging and challenging clinical elective experiences. We offer rotations with affiliated clinical sites and hospitals throughout North Carolina in cities such as Asheville, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh, and Wilmington that represent a variety of different healthcare systems. 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 three electives per academic year depending on available spaces
It is not always possible to accommodate every student 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 time with UNC School of Medicine. We understand that your final year of medical school is extremely busy, 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 to look at it all and feel free to contact the Visiting Student Coordinator with any questions that you may have.
