     International Student Visitors
    Thank you for your interest in pursuing an international medical student clinical rotation with our institution. Regrettably, we have very limited capacity for visiting students and can only extend invitations to final year medical students from colleges with whom we hold an institutional affiliation agreement. At this time, these colleges are limited to the following:

    Federal University of Bahia, Brazil
    Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil
    University of Oxford, England
    Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, Germany
    Karolinska Institute, Stockholm Sweden
    University of Gothenburg, Sweden

    If you are a final year medical student at one of these institutions, we encourage you to contact your university's administrative offices concerning student selection of the mutual exchange program. Once we are contacted with the selected representatives for the coming year, an application packet with course options for international visitors and scheduling blocks will be sent to you. Visitors may pursue a maximum of two 4-week clerkships.

    If you are not from one of these institutions, we regret that we cannot offer you the opportunity to pursue a clinical clerkship with us at this time.

    Robin Paetzold
    Director, Global Programs
