VSLO® Program for Institutions
The VSLO® program helps medical and public health students connect with institutions offering short-term elective opportunities that can enhance their medical education.
Institutions that join the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities™ (VSLO®) program may post elective opportunities in the VSLO application service and/or allow students to apply for electives posted by other participating institutions. The VSLO program provides support for away rotations and promotes best practices in diverse settings and contexts. Through institutional collaboration, members contribute to innovation and broaden their connections and outreach.
Currently, in direct response to the impact COVID-19 has had on travel as well as the health and educational priorities of hosting institutions, VSLO has temporarily suspended the review of new applications from interested institutions located outside of the U.S. When the global COVID-19 situation has stabilized and our current VSLO institutional users return to a more regular schedule for offering elective rotations, we will again open the review process for new institutions interested in joining the VSLO Global Network.
