Dear students. Given the unprecedented and ongoing changes to the hospital system during the COVID19 pandemic, we are not certain that we will be able to offer any visiting rotations for May and June at this point. Things are changing rapidly and we hope to be able to offer more concrete information soon.



Completion of core clerkships in Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, and OB/GYN
Current BCLS certification
Adequate malpractice coverage
Updated immunizations, including FIT testing


How to apply:

Applications for the clerkship are processed through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). Due to our affiliation with the University of California School of Medicine, our institution appears as "University of California-- Highland Hospital" under VSAS.

Please note that students rotating in May through November must be applying for Emergency Medicine residency.

For questions or concerns, please contact:
