Visiting Clerkships


In May 2014, University of Minnesota Medical School announced a new policy limiting the ability of the Department of Otolaryngology to accept U.S. medical students who want to do an externship here.

Applications must be submitted directly to the Medical School through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). The Medical School will hold your application until the cancel/add deadline for the period you are applying for has passed. Visit the Medical School Years 3/4 calendar.

After the cancel/add deadline, if our courses are full no visiting students will be admitted. If there are openings, Medical School will forward applicants' transcripts to the Department of Otolaryngology.  At that point, faculty will decide which students to admit.

Learn more about being a visiting scholar on the Visiting Scholar webpage or email our education office
