The Department of Otolaryngology welcomes fourth-year U.S. and international visiting medical students. Andrew Fuson, M.D., is the Medical Student Clerkship Director and assistant professor of the Department of Otolaryngology.

For fourth-year U.S. students, please complete your application in the Visiting Student Application System (VSAS). You may submit applications in VSAS on April 1st.  VSAS applications begin processing on May 1st.

Fourth-year medical students will spend one week on each service (head and neck, general, otology, pediatrics).  During this time, you will be asked to meet with faculty from our residency program interview committee.  If you decide to apply for an otolaryngology residency at UAB, your visit will be considered your interview. You will not need to return to UAB, but you will be considered for ranking along with our other applicants at the end of the interview season.   

For international visiting students, and students who attend an international medical school, please visit the International Medical Education website for more information about the program.

Please check the Visiting Medical Students website for more information and updates about this process.
