Please note: We do not offer extended observerships. Due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to offer the option for a second look visit, which would consist of a one day clinical observation, allowing you the ability to experience our program first hand, including faculty, resident interactions and facility exposure. If you wish to do an extended experience, you must follow the College of Medicine's Visiting Student Procedures. This applies to all individuals, even if you are a practicing physician in your home country. Due to COVID-19, the College of Medicine is currently not allowing for visiting student rotations.
