Visiting electives for the class of 2024

At the AFMC Board meeting on April 24, 2022, the Board approved the recommendation from the AFMC Committee on Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME), with the support of the AFMC Committee on Student Affairs, that visiting electives, including international electives, will be allowed starting in the Fall of 2022, for the Class of 2024, according to each school’s capacity and schedule.

Learners are encouraged to visit https://afmcstudentportal.ca/ to learn more about the application process and policies for visiting electives. Faculties of medicine determine the application windows, opening dates and fees for applications.

The refreshed learner focused Portal will be launched in May. It is designed to help students easily search and apply for available visiting electives.
