Elective/Departmental/Campus Specific Requirements

The University of North Carolina School of Medicine prides itself on the ability to offer a variety of clinical areas for potential 4th-year electives. While the Visiting Student Program has a general set of requirements for acceptance, some departments, individual electives, and campus locations require extra materials (personal statements, Step scores, etc.) to be included with the VSLO application in order to be considered eligible for scheduling. Once accepted, requirements other than the general set listed above may be required depending upon the elective, clinical site or campus where your rotation is taking place. All supplemental requirements will be listed in VLSO and attached to the elective you wish to apply for.
