Medical students may receive elective credit for global health rotations at
non-BUSM institutions/clinics. Electives must be at least four weeks
in length. Before you search for a site, review the How
to Set Up a GH Elective. When choosing a site, consider quality of teaching
and safety issues before confirmation of commitment.
The following resources will aid your search:
Health Post-Experience Summaries This database consists of elective summaries
by B.U. medical students who have undertaken global health electives in the
past. Any elective listed in the directory is automatically approved.
BUSM is part of VSLO Application Service (sometimes referred to as VSAS),
which enables students to browse and apply to electives offered by host institutions.
It is a collaborative network of US and international institutions. B.U. medical
students are eligible to undertake electives at any of the host
institutions. Contact Ana Gregory
for assistance with the site or choosing electives.
