Visiting Students

All students interested in visiting electives must go through the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, applying through the Visiting Students Application Service (VSAS). Please do not contact the Department or divisions directly. Visiting electives are open only to students from LCME accredited medical schools and students from our Global Partner Institutions.

The Department of Medicine currently does not offer observerships.

Stipends are available from the Office of Diversity to support students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine to pursue a senior elective at Northwestern. Detailed information regarding these stipends can be found on the Diversity site in their Programs section.

You can find out more about the Visiting Students Program, including the elective catalog, on the Education site in the Visiting Students section.
