Grading and Evaluation — Visiting Students

Visiting medical students must receive academic credit for participation in electives at Washington University School of Medicine. The School of Medicine will complete an evaluation form from the student’s home institution if it is provided to the Electives Office before the elective begins. Students may upload evaluation forms to VSAS, or provide a copy of the elective form to Electives Office staff upon arrival at Washington University.

Visiting medical students should not give the evaluation form directly to faculty members; the Electives Office will ensure that evaluations are completed in a timely manner and returned to the student’s home institution. The School of Medicine will use its own evaluation form if no form is provided.
