Application Process for Elective Rotation in
All visiting medical students should review the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Visiting Student Information page. The entire process may take in excess of three months, so please provide us with sufficient time to process your application. Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be offered a rotation.
Prior to applying directly to the Registrar's Office, Clinical Genetics must approve your application. Please:
1. Complete the online application form for the IGM elective rotation
2. Send a statement of purpose as an attachment (email@example.com) outlining the goals you hope to achieve during this experience
3. Send your curriculum vitae (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. Send a medical school transcript (unofficial is acceptable for this process but JHH will want an official one if you are accepted)
4. And one reference letter (this can be electronically sent (email@example.com) with original to follow in the post) from a faculty member at your medical school familiar with you and your academic work (JHH will want a letter from your Dean if you are accepted)
When these materials are received your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted with our decision. Once approval is obtained from our Vice Dean of Education for you to attend JHH for an elective, JHH will commence the process of collecting information from you directly. They will ultimately have to approve your eligibility for your visit.
After you are informed that Clinical Genetics and the Vice Dean have approved your application, you will also need to apply directly through the Registrar's Office. Emma Sullens, the Visiting Medical Student Coordinator (contact information is below) requires the following information to be sent to her:
A letter of recommendation from your Dean and a transcript of your record, sent directly by your medical school. Electives are limited to no more than one 8 week period per academic year.
Visiting students will be assessed a registration fee per quarter (9 weeks or any fraction thereof), payable in person at time of registration. Do not prepay this fee. The registration fee will not be prorated. Living accommodations may be available in the student dormitory. A single room includes bedding and towels. Effective 07/01/11 the rate for housing will be $500/a month. These rates are subject to change over time and should be verified with JHU housing.
Hospitalization insurance in an amount equivalent to that required of Johns Hopkins students is required for all visiting students. Application for coverage can be made to the School of Medicine if you do not have equivalent coverage. Foreign insurance is not acceptable. An immunization form must be submitted prior to starting the elective.
Accepted students must complete HIPAA training prior to registration. Please refer to web site http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/som/students/policies/visitors.html for additional information on this requirement.
If you are interested in a clerkship, please complete the enclosed application materials and return it to this office. List three electives in order of your preference, as there are many requests we are unable to accommodate due to the scheduling of electives by our own students.
If you need further assistance or information, please contact Emma Sullens at (410) 614-4320 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
