Visiting International Researchers

KU Medical Center offers clinical electives to international medical students in their final year of medical school.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and the resulting effect on our campus, KU Medical Center is deferring any clinical elective opportunities for international students until January 2022.

Clinical Elective Opportunities

The Clinical Electives Program at KU Medical Center is a great opportunity for students to enhance their medical knowledge by gaining practical skills while training alongside our faculty physicians. 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 six to eight months prior to the elective start date.

How to Apply

We partner with our Office of International Programs to support this opportunity.
