Domestic Visiting Medical Students

Domestic Students: Students from U.S. medical colleges must apply using the Domestic Medical Student Application in VSLO.  

We are unable to give updates as to the status of an application or the availability of space. We are unable to accept applications outside of VSLO. Please direct all application questions to and do not contact the departments directly.

The application deadline is eight weeks prior to the start of the rotation block. Departments will make offers no later than six weeks before the start of the rotation.

Once an offer of acceptance is made, students must confirm their attendance in VSLO within one week or the offer is rescinded and given to the next eligible applicant.
