Visiting Student Information

We welcome and encourage any interested students from other institutions to consider an "away" elective at University of Washington Department of OB/GYN. This will give you the opportunity to meet many of our residents and faculty and to evaluate our residency program. At the same time, this will give us an opportunity to meet you. The electives that are offered are 681 Gynecologic Oncology and 682 High Risk OB (course details are found below). If you are interested, please go to the UW Visiting Student site to determine requirements and to apply.

Once your application has been approved by the School of Medicine, you will be required to send your USMLE Step 1 score and performance in 3rd year core clerkships. An official transcript will not be needed, however. This information will be used to determine which visiting students will be offered one of our limited prime summer and autumn slots. Due to the limited number, we will not be able to offer electives to international students. We require a minimum of two clinical honors and 220 or above on USMLE Step 1.

Electives from July through January are reserved for those students planning on applying to the UW OB/GYN Residency Program.
