Guidelines for Visiting Medical Students from Mercer University and Other College Programs
Memorial University Medical Center has a limited number of clinical electives available for visiting students in their fourth year of medical school. Mercer University School of Medicine students have first priority in selecting rotations and consequently, we cannot always accommodate visiting students at the time or in the discipline requested. However, students from all eligible programs are invited to apply. Visiting student applications are accepted beginning May 1, 2014. Visiting student elective rotations are available between August 2, 2014 and March 25, 2014. For more information on our visiting student electives, please contact the medical student program coordinator at the requested site: Savannah campus: Leigh Anne Kirkland, 912-350-8076; Macon campus: Lisa Killingsworth, 478-633-1063.
Eligible visiting students are limited to a maximum of eight weeks of electives. Accepted students are responsible for securing their own housing for the rotation. All visiting students are charged a $75 application fee payable to Mercer University School of Medicine. Memorial University Medical Center requires all visiting students to complete a background check and drug screen through PSI ($76). Please note that you should NOT complete the background check and drug screen until you have been approved for a rotation.
