Visiting Medical Students

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Surgery at the UW!

Admissions for visiting students are done through the School of Medicine Dean's office. Rotation descriptions, application materials, UW SOM calendar are only available through the SOM website. If have questions regarding the application process, please email the visitors' desk in the Dean's office.

Rotation positions are filled first by the UW students then by visitors. Historically, we ALWAYS have a space for you. The key is to submit your application as early as possible because we fill vacancies on a first come/first serve basis by the date stamp on your application as it is received in the Dean's office. It is also wise to specify a second and third choice in case your first choice is not available. Please adhere to the UW calendar. Visiting students may take only ONE elective within our department. NOTE: in accordance with federal law all persons having access to patient related material must complete a formal HIPAA training module. Once you have been accepted to the UW, you will be contacted with the details of this training. Contact the visiting student desk for more information.

We look forward to working with you!
