Visiting Students (Rush)

Thank you for your interest in a visiting student clerkship at Rush University Medical Center! We are currently not accepting applications but will be offering visiting student clerkships for the 2019-2020 academic year.

We are happy to host visiting students to give interested students an opportunity to rotate through and see the department and educational opportunities at Rush first hand. Visiting students will rotate through Rush University Medical Center in downtown Chicago.

Note: this is a separate rotation from the Cook County (Stroger) visiting student rotation. For students interested in a visiting student rotation at Cook County Hospital, please visit:

To apply, we will first require you to submit a pre-application through our online application. We will begin accepting applications by mid March, please keep checking back for updates.

Once accepted by the Emergency Medicine Clerkship Director, students will then be required to submit a secondary application through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). All required VSAS documentation must be received as a condition of acceptance of the rotation. Please do not submit a VSAS application unless you have been notified of acceptance by the clerkship coordinator. Applications submitted through VSAS without being accepted via the pre-application will not be considered.

Application Requirements:

  • All visiting students must submit on online application via our website to be considered for a clerkship
  • Must be current student at US medical school. We do not accept international students at this time.
  • You must have a USMLE Step 1 score. We accept osteopathic students to the rotation, however we require a USMLE step 1 score.
  • All students must have proof of adequate immunizations and proof of adequate malpractice insurance. This will be required to be submitted with your VSAS documentation.

Potential Rotation Dates: 2019-2020 Academic Year (subject to change at this time)
