P&S offers elective study to international students that are approved by schools in which we have an affiliation. A list of our affiliations can be found here: http://ps.columbia.edu/education/academics/visiting-students/international-visiting-students. Students who attend one of these schools and are interested in elective study at P&S should first contact their school for approval and instructions on how to apply.
If you are an international student from a school that we do not have an affiliation with, you are unfortunately not eligible to apply through the Office of Medical Education under any circumstances. P&S is not seeking any new affiliation agreements at this time, and P&S does not offer observerships.
Students who attend LCME accredited schools in Canada are not considered international students, and are welcome to apply.
