Visiting Medical Student Rotations

The Jefferson Department of Rehabilitation Medicine welcomes medical students who wish to have the opportunity to learn more about the specialty. Visiting students may enroll in REHAB 401 and will receive a wide breadth of exposure to the field in the inpatient and outpatient setting. This is a four-week rotation that is available in conjunction with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College schedule. We are unable to make exceptions to this schedule and unable to offer 2 week rotations. Please be aware that a visiting student rotation is not a requirement in order to apply to our residency program and all interested applicants are encouraged to apply through ERAS.

Students must have completed their core clerkships and have final year status at their respective medical school. Visiting students are accepted for the following four 4-week rotation blocks in 2 applications cycles.
