Medical Student Programs

2017 Medical Student Education Celebration

Unique rotations for medical students are offered by UCSF and UCSF Fresno.

For information on applying to the UCSF rotations as a visiting student, please visit the UCSF SOM Visiting Students website and the UCSF SOM Visiting Students - Emergency Medicine website.

For information on our Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) for students who are underrepresented in medicine, please visit our scholarship page.


Thank you very much for your interest in the UCSF Emergency Medicine Sub-I. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UCSF has a medical school wide temporary hold on accepting any visiting students for rotations until May 2020 (this hold may be extended into the summer). We hope that we will be able to have visiting students rotating in our emergency department later in the year, possibly starting in July or August 2020. We are continually re-evaluating the situation and we will keep you updated. 


UCSF Emergency Medicine is also in agreement with the CORD Consensus Statement regarding SLOEs and away rotations. We fully understand the stress this situation places on students interested in Emergency Medicine, and we greatly appreciate your patience as we navigate these uncharted educational waters. Thank you again for your interest in UCSF!
