International Visiting Students
Due to limited course availability, our international student elective program is now only open to pre-selected students from schools with which we have established reciprocal exchange agreements. If you have not been asked to complete a form by the Visiting Student Coordinator at DGSOM, then we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate your request for clinical electives at UCLA and/or our affiliated hospitals. Thank you for your understanding.
