U.S. Visiting Medical Students

Medical students from other institutions in their final year of medical school may apply to take an elective at UTMB through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). Please note that the VSAS service is only available to medical students enrolled at U.S. LCME or COCA accredited schools.

(Note: UTMB only accepts medical students in their final year of school.  Also, Students in Fifth Pathway programs are not eligible to participate in electives as Visiting Medical Students.)

Visiting Medical Students from Non-U.S. Medical Schools

The only non- U.S. medical school whose students we may accept for spots in fourth year medical school electives are students of Instituto de Medicina Tropical or Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Peru. We are unable to accept students from any other non-U.S. medical school at this time.

Should you need additional information not found here or on the VSAS website, please call us at (409) 772-1215, or email us at enrollment.services@utmb.edu.
