Thank you for your interest in senior clinical training at Tulane University School of Medicine. Tulane is pleased to offer clinical clerkships to senior-year students of other U.S. medical schools, including member schools of the Association of American Medical Colleges. We are NOT able to accommodate students from medical schools located outside of the United States . Visiting Students must be seniors in a four-year curriculum when the clerkship is taken and must have completed the equivalent of Tulane's basic clerkships in internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, family medicine, psychiatry, neurology, and obstetrics and gynecology. You can find basic information about Tulane here.
Our Visiting Student Program accepts applications through the AAMC VSLO program. You must receive authorizations from your home school in order to use this program. You can log into VSLO at http://www.aamc.org/vsas to complete and submit an application for your preferred electives and dates.
Any application materials received outside of VSLO and/or outside of the published catalog year will not be accepted.
Please contact Katrina D'Aquin in the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs if you have any questions or issues.

Abbreviated Statement of Policies
Clerkships completed by visiting students do not carry credit within Tulane Medical School; therefore, visiting students are not eligible for the M.D. degree from Tulane University.
It is the visiting student's responsibility to get their evaluation form from their rotation prior to departure or make appropriate arrangements for their evaluation.
Applications from visiting students are processed after April 15.
Tulane University School of Medicine cannot accommodate requests to change the dates of rotations. Clerkships will follow Tulane's published schedule.
Visiting students will not be provided medical records training or access. Please be assured that you will still learn a lot from your visiting rotation!
The visiting student is not to be supported nor compensated by Tulane Medical School funds.
The visiting student must make his/her own provisions for room and board and parking. You may rent a room and lease parking space from the university if there are openings.
AAMC recommends RotatingRoom.com to find available housing.
Other policies concerning intramural aspects of clerkships for visiting students are not set forth in this abbreviated statement of policy.
