Visiting fourth-year students from programs accredited by the national Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) are welcome.
The Department of Surgery at the University of Arizona follows the guidelines for visiting medical students as described by The University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson. Please see the following link for complete details:
Please note: Students may NOT contact individual course directors. In addition, due to the high volume of applications, we regret that we cannot take phone calls related to VSAS applications.
The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson does not allow international students to enroll in our courses. However, if a student has an established relationship with one of our faculty members and that faculty wishes to directly supervise the student in an education activity here, then the faculty member may apply to the Dean of the College of Medicine – Tucson for permission to sponsor the student. If an international student does not have such a relationship with one of our faculty members, we will not consider their request.
