Zucker School of Medicine

Visiting Students

The Zucker SOM (ZSOM) endorses the Coalition for Physician Accountability Working Group's revised recommendations, and as such, we are anticipating a normal season for the 2022-2023 academic year. The link to our full policy can be found here: https://medicine.hofstra.edu/policy/policy-visiting-fourth-year-students.html.  

Due to high volume of interest, we cannot accept telephone calls regarding the status of your application. You will be notified through VSLO of any updates. Please email any questions to: SOMregistrar@hofstra.edu.

Please note: If you are interested in a visiting rotation in Urology or in Psychiatry: Zucker Visiting Elective for Students Underrepresented in Psychiatry, and wish to apply earlier than our school's VSLO opening date, please email us at SOMregistrar@hofstra.edu. We will put you in touch with the department.

All students attending US LCME accredited medical schools or COCA accredited AACOM member colleges are required to use the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities service (VSLO) to apply for Zucker School of Medicine rotations. 

**Due to the volume of applications, we do not accept applicants from foreign medical schools that do not already have an affiliation agreement with the Zucker School of Medicine.
