Visiting Medical Students

Due to the response to COVID-19, UT Southwestern Medical Center will not accept visiting students through July (block 1).  We will accept applications for future blocks in the 2020-2021 medical year with the understanding that the decision may change based on guidance in response to COVID-19 situation.
