MS3: Learn about visiting electives for underrepresented students

MUSC building

Medical University of South Carolina building

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) sponsors the MUSC Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Student Program. The program provides financial support to fourth-year students attending a U.S. medical school who are from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine including Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American/Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.

The program includes a four-week clinical rotation (elective or externship/sub-I) at MUSC and a stipend to offset the costs of travel and housing in Charleston, South Carolina.

Applicants must also complete the VSAS application and are encouraged to apply to multiple options and rotation dates. If a department does not offer a stipend, we still encourage you to apply through VSAS as away rotations are a great opportunity for departments to meet you and for you to see all that MUSC has to offer.

Applications will be reviewed beginning on May 1.
