International Visiting Students

**During the current outbreak of COVID-19, Columbia University VP&S has decided to temporarily suspend electives for all visiting students, international and domestic, for the foreseeable future, effective immediately and indefinitely. **

The Office of Medical Education accepts applications from international students who are approved by schools listed below. Students who attend one of the schools listed below should first contact their school for approval and instructions on how to apply.

If you are an international student from a school not listed below, you are unfortunately not eligible for elective study through the Office of Medical Education under any circumstances. VP&S is not seeking any new affiliation agreements at this time, and VP&S does not offer observerships.

Students who attend LCME accredited schools in Canada are not considered international students and are welcome to apply.
