Educational Opportunities

Visiting Medical Students Program

Duke Surgery offers a number of 4-week clinical electives for visiting medical students. You can apply through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). We encourage fourth-year medical students who are under-represented in medicine (URiM) to apply to the Visiting Clinical Scholars Program through the Duke School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI). For selected students, the scholars program provides payment or reimbursement for housing and travel. Duke ODI is committed to supporting the development of URiM students and providing a positive experience during their visiting rotations.
