Visiting Student Clinical Elective Scholarship Opportunities
UC San Diego welcomes students from all diverse backgrounds to apply for away clerkships. In doing so, the Department of Medicine may provide qualified students various visiting elective scholarships through the Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) to help ease the transition into an away rotation.
Eligible students are full-time, fourth-year medical students in good standing at accredited U.S. medical schools. Students remain registered at their own schools while participating in the four-week elective clerkship at UC San Diego.
Before applying to the VESP, each student must complete an application form VSAS.
For more information regarding deadlines, eligibility requirements, and specific stipend information, please visit the Department of Medicine VESP application page.
