Medical Students from Outside Canada Elective Requests
Due to changes in policies and lack of availability of training positions at the University of Alberta, the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry is only able to accept visiting undergraduate medical students who are studying at an LCME (Liason Committee on Medical Education) accredited medical school in the United States, or where a bilateral exchange has been established. International medical students who do not meet this criteria will not be accepted. Furthermore, we do not offer rotations, bench research, observational, or pre-clinical electives to international visiting students.
For more information on which schools are part of LCME or the bilateral exchange, please visit the AFMC Student Portal and check the "Student Type" under the University of Alberta Institution Profile.
