ELECTIVE INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL STUDENTS
In recent years, UCLA has offered a full range of
advanced clinical elective courses to medical students on a world-wide basis.
We have enjoyed the opportunity to be able to provide elective training to
virtually thousands of students. However, this is a time of overwhelming demand
for clinical training and of increasing financial constraint necessitating
curtailment in the number of students accepted to participate in our visiting student program. We will continue to consider applications from students attending
foreign medical schools where reciprocity in on-site clinical elective training
for our own students would be offered and considered for credit by our school.
If you attend a school which does
not provide on-site clinical training, in English, or if the clinical training
opportunities at your school would not be credited for UCLA students by UCLA,
please be advised that we are not in a position to accommodate
If you are interested in doing an elective at UCLA please complete this form.
You must be a final-year medical student attending a school with whom we have
a reciprocal relationship. If qualified, you will receive relevant application materials and information via airmail at the home
address you provide.
Currently eligible students may apply for up to a maxiumum of 9 weeks total, with an application fee of $450 for each 3-week elective (maximum of 3 electives). Thank you for your interest in our program.
Information will be available soon for the July 2013 - May 2014 academic year.
We do not begin giving spots out to non-UCLA students for our next academic year until early June, and availability of electives is also not known until this time.
Please allow at least two weeks for a reply.
