Medical Student Education

Visiting Medical Students

Domestic Students

The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine offers electives for medical students from other U.S. medical schools. A maximum of two four-week electives can be taken for a total of eight weeks.

Our senior electives are designed specifically for students who have already completed one full year of in-hospital clinical training prior to an anticipated elective. It is necessary that visiting students first complete all Clinical Core Clerkships before participating in these electives. 

Prospective applicants who have already graduated from medical school are not eligible to participate. Details of the rules, regulations and requirements for this program are included in the UCCOM Visiting Student Policy (PDF).
