Important update for applicants (3/3/23):
Applications are open for the 2023-2024 Academic Year! Please submit your application via VSLO. Please note that we will have a significant change in the application process from previous years. We no longer require a separate pre-application through our website and ask that you apply via VSLO. All applications which meet the standard requirements will be considered.
We will notify applicants who have applied by April 1st of acceptance by April 15th. Due to demand, we unfortunately will not be able to accept all applicants, but many will be placed on a waitlist as rotation availability changes. Applications submitted after April 1st will be considered on a rolling basis pending rotation availability. We are open to MD or DO candidates, but we are unable to accept any applications from international students and those applications will not be considered. We will be offering rotations from June-November (rotation dates listed below) and will again be offering our scholarship for Underrepresented Minorities in Medicine.
Thank you for your interest in a visiting student clerkship at Rush University Medical Center!
We are happy to host visiting students to give interested students an opportunity to rotate through and see the department which serves as our main education site and experience the educational opportunities at Rush firsthand. Visiting students will rotate through Rush University Medical Center in downtown Chicago.
As a student rotating in our Emergency Department, you will function as a sub-Intern on your clinical shifts, and you will have the opportunity to care for patients of all ages. During this 4-week rotation, you will complete 13 shifts and you will attend a suture lab, airway lab, hands-on simulation sessions, and resident education sessions. We will also provide a Standard Letter of Evaluation (SLOE) for this rotation, and you will have an opportunity to interview for our residency program while you are in Chicago.
Note: this is a separate rotation from the Cook County (Stroger) visiting student rotation. For students interested in a visiting student rotation at Cook County Hospital, please visit: http://www.cookcountyem.com/students/
