Visiting 4th Year Elective Program

IMPORTANT NOTE: 4th Year elective offerings are primarily available only to students matriculated at the Geisel School of Medicine. Students enrolled in other LCME (Liaison Committee on Medical Education) accredited schools will be considered, however, if space is available.

Dear Prospective Applicant:

You may access the current offerings of Geisel School electives.

Applications will be considered providing the student is/has:

Acceptance into an elective is based primarily on availability, with priority being given to Geisel Medical students. Your application will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Completed applications on VSAS (Visiting Student Application Service) and the $100.00 processing fee (per elective) must be received in the Office of Student Affairs at least four weeks prior to your desired starting date for the elective. This fee is refundable only in the event that the elective requested is not available.

If you are interested in taking a sub-internship elective, please be sure to include a copy of your transcript and a letter of support from your dean with your application.

An increasing number of students are completing graduate and professional school programs across the country with a documented learning, physical, or psychological disability. If you are such a student, we are eager to work with you at Geisel in arranging the reasonable accommodations for you that have been approved at your own medical school, so that you will get the most out of your elective experience at Geisel. Please note that Geisel School of Medicine provides funding for reasonable accommodations for its own students when they participate in electives at other institutions. Our expectations is that funding for such accommodations will be the responsibility of the visiting student's home medical school, or the individual students. All requests for accommodations should be directed to Glenda Shoop, at (603) 650-1218.

For students who are looking for housing accommodations, we encourage looking at our complimentary sublet list.

We would like to thank you for your interest in The Geisel School of Medicine clinical electives program. If you need further information, please feel free to contact me or my office.

Sincerely,

Maghan Porter
Department of Clinical Education
