Visiting Medical Students

Visiting Medical Students

Medical students from other U.S. institutions in their final year of medical school may apply to take an elective at UTMB through the VSLO Application Service (VSLO). Access to VSLO is granted by your home school.

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

UTMB only admits non-U.S. medical students for visiting rotations if the student's school has a current affiliation agreement with UTMB. If you are a student at an affiliated school, you must be in your final year of medical school to qualify for enrollment in an elective course at UTMB. You are ineligible if you are not in your final year, or have finished medical school.

For more information please contact Enrollment Services for Visiting Students.
