Application Received

When your application is received, the Visiting Student Coordinator will send you an email confirming receipt of your application and will list any items that are still missing. We will not contact you again until all documents are received.

Application Denied

If your application does not meet our requirements, you will be notified by email/ VSAS that your application has not been accepted. Fees are non-refundable.

Application Approved

Once your application is complete has been approved, your application will be forwarded to the department(s) where you are requesting a clinical elective. You will receive an email confirming that your application has been approved and forwarded to the department. MD students will be notified by VSAS that their status has been made 'eligible'. An approved application does not guarantee a clerkship.

After your application has been approved, all further correspondence, including your clerkship offer, will come from the departmental coordinator (MD students will receive a clerkship offer via VSAS). Contact information is under the Departmental Course Listings page on this website.
