Due to COVID-19, we are currently not accepting any visiting student until further notice.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Loma Linda University School of Medicine welcomes elective applications from students in good standing in their senior year of medicine at AAMC Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredited institutions. Students in their senior year at osteopathic schools of medicine accredited by the Committee on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) of the American Osteopathic Association are also invited to apply.

Please note that we are unable to accept applications or make elective placements for students enrolled in foreign medical schools. 

All applications from students in LCME-accredited medical schools and COCA-accredited osteopathic schools of medicine must be submitted through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO). Paper applications and email requests will not be accepted.

Once your application has been vetted and approved, it will then be sent over to the surgery clerkship office for assignment and scheduling.  Upon this completion, you will then be contacted by the dean’s office with an approval letter informing your acceptance for the rotation elective. 

We have attached our goals and objectives below for your review and look forward to having the opportunity to share in your education at our wonderful institution and in our clerkship for the department of surgery.
