University list for International Medical Students

This webpage will provide you a comprehensive list of all US based universities/medical schools where international medical students are eligible to apply for electives, if they meet the application requirements

I have Categorized the University list into two groups:

1) Group A: Universities that offer electives to ALL international medical students regardless of affiliation.

2) Group B: Universities that offer electives to only those international medical students whose medical school have a formal affiliation with their institution

The list has NOT been arranged inorder of Rank. Before you start to dig down into the list, you might want to take a look at the official list of Best US Hospitals and the University rank list based on Research by visiting the US news website.

For every institution enlisted below: clicking the institute name will open up a new window to the official elective application webpage for that institution. Before you start, there are some basic Principles that have general applicability, and must be taken into consideration before interpretating the information on institutes given below:

1- For all institutions enlisted below, if the visa type is not specified in requrements then it means that you can do an elective at that institute on B1 Visa or business visa.

2- For all institutions in New York State, you will be required to obtain New York State Eligibility letter as part of the application requirements ( usually after acceptance), even if its not specified.

3- Most elective periods are of 4 weeks duration, tuition fee is usually per 4 week elective, e-g if you want to do x 2 four week electives where the tuition is $100 then you will have to pay $200 for two electives. Application fee on the other hand is constant and is a 'once only' fee regardless of the number of electives you do at the same institute. However many places still use 'application/tuition fee' interchangably, specific information will be provided of their website in every case.

4-Unless specified otherwise, the minimum requirements for malpractice insurance are $1million/$3million for most institutions that require it.
