Externship Overview

UMMSM allows students to receive credit for Outgoing Externships Opportunities using the AAMC’s Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSAS) software. Students may also receive credit for Outgoing Externship Opportunities outside of VSAS, but these opportunities are subject to additional requirements.

To participate for Outgoing Externship Opportunities students must:

  1. Be in good academic and professional standing
  2. Have an active student status and show enrollment
  3. Successfully complete their 3rd year core clerkships
  4. Successfully remediate any outstanding course requirements prior to the externship (e.g. shelf remediation, remediation of clinical time, etc.)

There are a couple of options that are available to UMMSM students:
