Fourth-year students from osteopathic or allopathic medical schools are welcome to complete surgery rotations at OHSU.
Applications may be submitted using VSAS (Visiting Student Application Service) beginning May 1, 2013. Completed applications received by May 15 will be processed initially. Applicants requesting a July rotation will need to be in this initial period. You will be notified of your acceptance no later than June 7, 2013.
Applications received between May 16-31 will be processed and notifications sent by June 14, 2013. All completed applications received beginning June 1, 2013 will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
The first notifications will be released after all the applications received in May have been processed. (All documentation must be uploaded to VSAS and your application must be released by the Dean's office to be considered complete.)
Information for the 2013-2014 school year can be found on the School of Medicine website.
The link has information for course prerequisites for individual courses. We have limited number of rotations available. Every effort is made to accommodate visiting students. All visitors who apply for the General Surgery Residence Program will be interviewed for a residency spot. They will have a choice to interview while they are here or to come back when the interviews are going on (depending on when their visiting rotation is). We cannot guarantee interviews for other residency programs, i.e. Plastics, etc.
The 2014-2015 Visiting rotation information should be coming out in March of 2014. The VSAS application should open up in May 2014.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to email our Medical Student Coordinator.
