About the AFMC Student Portal

The AFMC Student Portal is an online, bilingual service to facilitate the application and placement of medical students for undergraduate visiting electives at the 17 faculties of medicine in Canada. The AFMC Student Portal services include a searchable database for visiting electives in Canada; online application process for Canadian and international students; and placement and confirmation tracking tools for elective coordinators at each faculty.

National Reports

The AFMC Student Portal Data on Visiting Electives: National Report is a public document released annually in the first quarter of the year. The report captures information on the application and placement activities across all 17 Canadian medical schools for visiting students as well as home school students at a given host institution (i.e. schools accepting applications for visiting electives through the Portal). The National Report also includes a Policy Focus related to a subject deemed by stakeholders to be pertinent to advancing the policy dialogue on visiting electives.

Announcements

January 7th, 2022 - Portal and Visiting Electives update

The AFMC Student Portal for visiting electives is currently closed. Visiting Electives for the Class of 2022 were suspended during the AFMC Board meeting on April 18, 2021. That includes electives for both Canadian and International students. The Undergraduate Deans of Canada’s medical schools are meeting on a regular basis and the decision to re-open the Portal will be made collaboratively and consistently across the country taking into account learning opportunities, provincial covid restrictions and other public health concerns.

We are working with our new Service Provider to build out the new visiting elective service portal. It will be ready when electives are offered again.
