UC PRITZKER MEDICAL STUDENTS
Every spring, rising third year and fourth year medical students participate in a lottery to select and rank desired electives for the upcoming year. There are four dermatology-related courses:
VISITING MEDICAL STUDENTS
Visiting medical students (VMS) must apply through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO). Students may apply for multiple programs and multiple rotation time slots. Each slot is 2 weeks, beginning either on the 1st or 15th of the month. If a student wants a 4-week rotation, they must register for two 2-week slots that are continuous. If a student is participating in the MVCP, they must also register for MVCP99000. Once the VSLO application is complete, it is reviewed and accepted by the UC Pritzker Visiting Student Office. Next, the application is reviewed by selected dermatology faculty.
This is a competitive program with approximately 20 slots available for July through December. The available courses in VSLO are:
VISITING RESIDENT OBSERVERS
Applicants must have a University of Chicago Section of Dermatology attending faculty sponsor the rotation as part of the application process. The process includes submitting the application materials to the Dermatology Education Coordinator and then be reviewed by UCM GME Office for approval. The request needs to be made at least 60 days in advance.
