Medical Student Elective Rotations
For students at U.S. and Canadian medical schools
All medical student rotations at CHOP are arranged through the Registrar’s Office at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Please see the Penn School of Medicine for the information, forms, visiting student elective catalog and directions that are required to complete the process of requesting an elective.
For underrepresented minority medical students
The Visiting Clerkship for Underrepresented Minority Students is a program designed to welcome a diverse group of medical students to CHOP and encourage exchange, shared experience and exposure. Visiting URM students will spend four weeks on one of the following: Subspecialty Elective Rotation, Inpatient floor, Emergency Department, or the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) NICU. Accepted students will also be provided with a faculty mentor and have the opportunity to meet with the Residency Program Director, as well as spend time with residents from our Multicultural Physicians’ Alliance (MPA).The MPA meets several times a year to organize activities for recruitment, to participate in community outreach, and to provide a supportive social network for its members.
The clerkship is funded to cover students’ travel and living expenses. For more information, email Dr. Jessica Fowler.
For students at international medical schools
All medical student rotations at CHOP are facilitated by the Penn School of Medicine’s Global Health Programs, and then arranged through the Registrar’s Office at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Information including a list of international medical schools that have affiliation agreements with the University of Pennsylvania can be found on the Global Health Program website.
