Visiting Student Program

Tufts University School of Medicine welcomes medical students interested in applying to our Visiting Student Program. Interested students must be in good standing and their final year of an LCME accredited medical school. Students attending an Osteopathic medical school are eligible to Baystate Medical Center and Maine Medical Center, only. Additionally, all students must be fluent in English. Visiting applicants should refer to the VSAS website.

All students from LCME accredited medical schools will apply for Tufts University School of Medicine electives using VSAS. The application process will begin on April 15 annually. A $100.00 non-refundable processing fee is assessed for each approved rotation. Once scheduled for a rotation, students must contact the Registrar’s office, directly, to cancel the offer.

Students who are interested in participating in Baystate Medical Center programs should refer to Baystate's website.

All electives are four weeks in duration and are available to eligible, qualified students, space permitting. Variation of clerkship (off-date scheduling) will not be accommodated. Please note that Tufts University School of Medicine requires an official transcript (on official transcript paper, with an accompanying seal), issued by the Registrar. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Visiting students are limited to no more than two (2) four-week rotations (8 weeks in total). While participating at Tufts University School of Medicine, students will retain enrollment at their home institution. Students are not officially enrolled at Tufts University School of Medicine.
