International Medical Students

Driscoll Children’s Hospital does not have an International Student Elective Program

DCH Faculty may request a courtesy rotation on behalf of an international student. The faculty will act as that student’s sponsor during the rotation. The Sponsoring Physician must make the initial request. The Department of Medical Education cannot accept requests from International Students to procure sponsors. Students will be required to complete an application, pass a background check and provide proof of liability coverage. These rotations are subject to availability and approval by the Director of Medical Education and must be sanctioned by the student’s school of medicine. Spring (January-June) are the best times for such rotations. This is not an Observership status and only students in good standing will qualify.

Pre-Doc Shadowing for College Students

DCH faculty may request a courtesy rotation on behalf of a college student. The faculty physician will act as that student’s sponsor during the rotation. If the student will be spending more than 10 hours in our facility, approval from the director of medical education will be required.

All rotations are subject to approval by the Department of Medical Education.
