Rotation Application Process

We would be happy to have you rotate with us. Our elective rotation in Emergency Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is affiliated with Harvard Medical School (HMS). The rotation is offered every month.

Harvard Medical School uses the AAMC’s Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) system for visiting student rotations. Please apply through VSLO no later than 90 days prior to your desired clerkship start date. Please note, there are multiple emergency medicine electives listed through HMS. The BIDMC Emergency Medicine rotation is elective number ME535M.5. View our elective rotation in VSLO.

Please send us an email to let us know you are interested in rotating with us and will be applying. We request that you send us a copy of your application to the address below, so we can help facilitate the process.

Second, if there is an issue about the dates of rotations not lining up with your school's calendar, please contact us.

Third, a note about immunizations, HMS and BIDMC require proof of immunity. Documentation of vaccination is not sufficient, they require positive antibody titers. Please read the instructions carefully.

The HMS Registrar will notify you of acceptance 90 days before the start of the rotation. For any additional questions regarding the application process, you may contact the HMS Registrar’s office by calling 617-432-1515 or by emailing us.
