The Visiting International Students Program is viewed as one of the best for international medical students to obtain exposure to world-class medical care through participation in clinical electives at Weill Cornell Medicine. Visiting international medical students in their final year attending universities outside the United States and Canada are welcome to apply.
In the past academic year, international medical students visited from Austria, Australia, Brazil, China, India, Italy, Jordan, Peru, Philippines, Pakistan, Poland, Syria, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Switzerland, Thailand and New Zealand. Electives are offered in a range of different specialities, such as Medicine, Emergency, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Anesthesiology and more. Visiting international students can also attend lectures, curated presentations and other extracurricular events at WCM while having the chance to explore New York City.
