Elective Catalog 

All available rotations are listed in the VSLO Electives Catalog.   

When will the 2024 electives catalog be posted in VSLO? January 2, 2024 

When will applications for 2024 open in VSLO? February 12, 2024  

The VSLO application portal will be opened at approximately 10:00am Central Standard Time on February 12, 2024. Note that the portal must be opened manually, so 10:00am CST is only an estimation.

What about 2025? Catalogs for 2025 will be posted in January 2025. 

Elective availability changes rapidly once applications open. The Electives Office strives to update the VSLO catalog as quickly as possible, but please be aware that listed availability will not always be accurate, especially in the first few months after applications open.
