* only through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities™ (VSLO™) program


It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with a particular country’s or state’s requirements at the place where he/she is planning to do his/her residency, with respect to the maximum number of weeks of electives that could be completed outside of PUMS.

Please note that in order to take a residency in the state of New York, students are allowed a maximum of 12 weeks of electives in that state and the remaining 4 weeks must be completed at PUMS.

We are happy to inform you that PUMS has joined the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities™ (VSLO™) and signed an appropriate agreement with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) allowing our School to participate in this international student exchange program for elective rotations.

offered by INMED – Institute for International Medicine

Medical students can begin a Global Health track by participating in the International Medicine and Public Health Hybrid Intensive Course, which covers relevant global health topics such as:

  • Cross-Cultural Competency
  • Diseases of Poverty
  • International Health Leadership
  • Disaster Management
  • International HIV Medicine
  • International Public Health

Upon completion of the hybrid course, students in their 4th year of medical school will qualify for an international elective at one of INMED training sites around the world and be board eligible. The board exam is a summative evaluation of their knowledge, competencies and performance in practice in international medicine and public health.

For planning purposes, it is ideal for students to begin this track with the hybrid course in their first or second year of school, however, INMED will gladly continue to service third and fourth year students as they apply.
