Visiting Students

In the fourth year of medical school, students can choose to complete an elective at another U.S. medical school. Students may want to experience a particular specialty at another institution or check out the area for a potential residency spot.

Current students who want to visit other institutions can apply online at the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). If you are considering a school that is not part of the VSAS program, you must contact the school directly to apply.

The University of Nebraska College of Medicine will be using VSAS, the Visiting Student Application Service, to receive visiting student applications for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Applications may be submitted through VSAS starting on April 1.  To apply to our institution, please complete and send us a VSAS application for your preferred electives and dates. 


For more information on our visiting student electives, please contact Sue Pope at  For more information on VSAS, please visit


The University of Nebraska College of Medicine does not accept application for electives from students attending foreign medical schools and non-LCME accredited institutions.
