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.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Updates as of May 26, 2020

Our institution will follow the Coalition for Physician Accountability recommendations regarding away rotations and therefore, we will not receive any visiting students for the remainder of the 2020-21 academic year.
