Medical Student Electives Program

Thank you for your interest in the Medical Student Electives Program at Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM). We are currently accepting applications for the 2015—2016 academic year.

There are tuition costs associated with electives positions. If you do not have a current relationship with a Tufts-affiliated sponsor (such as government-sponsored program), then the tuition for Electives is $5,000 per month. You either need to pay for yourself or have someone or an organization cover the tuition.

To apply for electives positions being offered from September 2015—June 2016, please send your CV, transcripts, letter of recommendation and personal statement (emphasizing your area of interest) in a single PDF file to

For additional updates, please periodically check the Visiting Students Program page under the TUSM Registrar's Office web section.
