    Message from The VSLO Team

    Dear VSLO Colleagues, 

    We hope that 2023 is off to a great start for you and your colleagues! 

    Thanks to those of you who joined one of two advisor webinars we held in December. We were fortunate to have been joined by panelists with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and you can view both the MD and DO webinar recordings under the “Resources” section of our Advisor Resources page. As our panelists mentioned, we encourage you to join the VSLO listserv ahead of the application season and connect with your colleagues from other institutions. 

    Additionally, we will be hosting a student webinar in February and will provide registration information soon. This webinar will focus on addressing common questions about the away rotation process from students in the U.S. network. Attendees will hear directly from a panel of Host institutions who will share insights about how their institutions review applications and other details of the decision-making processes. 

    Finally, check the website in the coming weeks for the dates and registration information for refresher training for Home and Host institutions. 

    Thank you,   

    The VSLO Team

    As part of the AAMC’s access control policies and procedures, we would like to remind system administrators to review the list of users at your institution who currently have access to the VSLO application service.
