De Facultad de Medicina - Universidad Francisco Marroquín

Francisco Marroquín Medical School offers a maximum of three months of elective rotations to international medical students who are currently enrolled in their fourth or final year M.D. or D.O. program at their medical school.

All visiting rotations are scheduled through the Medical School Director´s Office. Clerkships can be scheduled for any date that suits the student best. We require a complete application form, a nom-refundable application fee of $150.00 per four-week rotation, and several additional supporting documents. Students are scheduled on a first come, first served basis, based on their file completation date. Once we have processed your application, you will notified by e-mail. Please see How to Apply for details.

If a student wants to drop a clerkship or there is a scheduling changes there is a required minimum of two weeks prior to the beginning of the clerkship period to do so. This ensures that students on the waitlist for that period can be accommodated and that clerkship director can plan patient care and educational activities. Failure to adhere to this policy raises concerns about the professional conduct of the student.

Do not call the Department of interest or faculty. Our office is responsible for the roster. Some faculty may not know the visiting student process.
