Visiting Clerkships

Stanford Medical School offers a maximum of three months of elective rotations to students who are currently enrolled in their fourth or final year M.D. or D.O. program at a school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education or Education Department of the American Osteopathic Association (for details, see "Eligibility Requirements" under the How to Apply section).

All visiting rotations are scheduled through the Office of Medical Student Affairs. Visiting students are scheduled during the time specified for each quarter because Stanford medical students have priority in taking these electives. The following clerkships require prior approval from the clerkship directors, please contact these departments first before submitting your application to our office. Their contact information can be found in the clerkship descriptions listed in the catalog.
