The University of Kansas Medical Center offers short-term clinical electives to international medical students in their final year of medical school. The Short-Term Electives Program at KUMC is a great opportunity for students to enhance their medical training by shadowing our physicians and gaining practical skills. Each clinical elective module is four weeks. International students are limited to no more than two modules. There are a limited number of spaces available for each module, and the application process starts nine months prior to the elective start date.
