Visiting Students

Due to COVID-19, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine has suspended accepting any new visiting students applications. Please check back for any updates to when applications will be accepted again.

Visiting Medical Student

The UK College of Medicine is a host institution under the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) program. If you are enrolled as a fourth year medical student at a school that is accredited by the United States Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), we invite you to apply for an elective at the College of Medicine-Lexington Campus through VSLO.

All students must apply by the deadline date for each elective enrollment period, as published on the VSLO web site. Applications are only accepted through the VSLO system. If you miss the deadline, you are not eligible for an elective at the UK College of Medicine. All students must follow established guidelines and procedures (no exceptions).

If you are accepted for a visiting student rotation, you will need to pay a one-time $75 placement fee regardless of how many rotations you are doing. When you accept our offer of a rotation, go to UK’s Visiting Medical Student Authorize.Net page to pay your non-refundable $75.00.
