Exchange Programs

Exchange Programs:

P & S now maintains student exchange programs with four overseas medical schools. These electives are arranged through the P & S Office of Student Affairs. Interested students apply directly to the Assistant Dean for Student Attairs, P & S 3-401, Tel. (212) 305-1612, or email Stephanie Molholt sam69@columbia.edu

The Deadline for applications for all of these programs is May 1, the year prior to the elective. Because the elective at Flinders University of South Australia has just recently been approved, applications for Spring of 1999 will be accepted through early 1999
