Medical Student Education

Visiting Medical Students

Domestic Students

The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine offers electives for medical students from other U.S. medical schools. A maximum of two four-week electives can be taken for a total of eight weeks.

Our senior electives are designed specifically for students who have already completed one full year of in-hospital clinical training prior to an anticipated elective. It is necessary that visiting students first complete basic clerkships in medicine, surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, family medicine and obstetrics/gynecology before participating in these electives. 

Per LCME requirements, students can view UCCOM policy on filing a grievance and grade appeals in the Student Handbook.

  1. Principles guiding Interactions Between Teachers and Learners in Medicine
  2. Harassment/Abuse Policy
  3. Grievance Procedures
  4. Grade Appeals

Prospective applicants who have already graduated from medical school are not eligible to participate.Details of the rules, regulations and requirements for this program are included in the UCCOM Visiting Student Policy (PDF).
