Visiting MD/DO Student Elective Clerkship Descriptions & Required Pre-approvals

All clerkships open to visiting MD/DO students require pre-approval from the associated Stanford clerkship contact before submitting an application form. Only one clerkship is available for participation per visiting student. Click the sections below to determine which elective clerkships are available to visiting students and how to obtain a pre-approval.  

Each clerkship department handles their own pre-approval process.  Therefore, please contact them for any questions related to their process found on this page.  Contact information can be found below under the various departments or on the Course Bulletin by searching for the specific clerkship of interest.  If the clerkship department is not listed on this page, please contact them directly regarding their pre-approval process.
