Medical Student Opportunities
Elective rotations are available to fourth-year medical students that are interested in pursuing a residency at Baylor University Medical Center. Interested allopathic or osteopathic students from accredited institutions may apply through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities application service (VSLO).
Visiting electives may be offered in two or four week rotations from July through January. Students can begin viewing the courses and dates being offered, prerequisites, and institutional requirements at VSLO starting in March. Applications will be accepted starting April 1.
Baylor University Medical Center is dedicated to training a new generation of healthcare professionals that reflect the diverse communities we serve. To encourage top candidates from underrepresented social groups within the profession of medicine, the Department of Medical Education will annually offer a $1500 scholarship to assist with transportation and housing costs while rotating in Dallas on an approved VSLO elective.
