Visiting Medical Students

The Visiting Medical Student Program is an integral part of undergraduate medical education at the Pennsylvania State College of Medicine. Visiting students benefit from exposure to a wide variety of clinical experiences while at the same time, our students, residents, and faculty benefit from the opportunity to interact and work closely with students from different medical educational backgrounds.

Because of limited space available for clinical positions, Penn State medical students are given priority in scheduling elective rotations. Visiting medical student positions will not be filled until Penn State student assignments have been completed.

Elective rotations are available for medical students in good standing in their final year from school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). Visiting Medical Student will only be graded on a four week rotation.

Must have taken and passed core clinical rotations in Medical, Pediatrics, Family and Community Medicine (or Primary Care Medicine), Psychiatry, Surgery, and Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Must have passed USMLE Step I Examination 225 or above.
