Visiting Students

The University of Maryland will be using VSAS, the Visiting Student Application Service, to receive visiting student applications for the academic year. Applications may be submitted through VSAS starting on April 30th. For more information on VSAS, please visit or contact VSAS at or (202)478-9878.

VSAS is available only for medical students from U.S. LCME accredited schools to use.  We do not accept osteopathic or international students. 


The University of Maryland is a participant of the Uniform Clinical Training Affiliation Agreement through the AAMC. While our institution does not require an affiliation agreement to host, your school may require an agreement prior to you visiting. We recommend you check with your home institution prior to applying as this may delay the process.

Canadian Medical Students Only

For full consideration, applications (with supporting documents, if required) must be received in the Office of Student Affairs at least 60 days prior to the start of the requested electives and must be properly completed. All incomplete applications will be returned.

You can reference our application, forms, catalogs, academic calendar and other general information through our website. For more information on our visiting student electives, please contact Ms. Tami VanDamme at (410) 706-7476.

Thank you and we look forward to your visit.
