After receiving your request for a clerkship, we will await consent from the medical departments of your choice. When the preferred medical department has consented, please write a motivation letter accordingly and submit the application documents. Please note that it will take about 2 months for an application to be formally accepted by the medical department, the dean of the School of Medicine, and the International Exchange Committee. If a notification of acceptance is required by a specific date in order to obtain a visa, please consult with our staff at the time of application.
