Out-of-state students who would like to rotate with the Department of Emergency Medicine should complete an application with the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS).
Initial documentation should include: Transcript (unofficial), USMLE board scores* and statement of intent. When your VSAS application is posted you will receive a link to complete the statement of intent. This statement is a maximum 400 characters telling us why you want to do a rotation here.
Students must be matriculated at an LCME-accredited medical school. We are unable to accept students from outside of the United States. Click here for the Directory of Accredited Medical Education Programs.
Out-of-state students who rotate with our clerkships will be offered the opportunity to interview with faculty for any of the 3 EM Residency programs: EM Banner UMC, EM Banner UMC South Campus and EM/Peds. Students who do not interview during the rotation will not be guaranteed a formal interview during the season. Learn more about the residency programs here. Here is how you schedule your interviews with each program: INTERVIEW FAQ's
*USMLE score is required for rotation and interview with our residency programs. Osteopathic students who have completed COMLEX are still required to take the USMLE to be considered for rotation and interview.
