M1 and M2 Students
RVUCOM offers a medical outreach elective opportunity. Open to all M1 and M2 medical students. The goal of this is to provide medical students a cross-cultural medical education experience through study and work outside of the United States, understand its challenges and apply the knowledge learned to their practice of medicine.
M3 and M4 Students
M3 and M4 students are eligible to perform one International Elective Rotation during their clinical years. Approval must be received through the Department of Global Medicine, the Office of Clinical Education, and Student Services. This elective may be 2-4 weeks in length.
Global Track Students
Students in the Global Track are expected to complete three International Rotations during their 3rd and 4th years. As all students, they also must receive academic approval prior to participating. These rotations may be 2-4 weeks in length, up to a maximum of 3 months. During the 3 months, these students may receive up to one month of CORE Rotation Credit in Family Medicine, or another specialty up to the discretion of the Office of Clinical Affairs.
