AFMC Student Portal

AFMC Student Portal

The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) offers the AFMC Student Portal, a bilingual information hub and centralized application service for visiting electives for all Canadian faculties of medicine. Services are offered for Canadian and international undergraduate medical students.

This application system is designed to streamline the elective placement process, and make life easier for students. It includes a searchable database of all visiting electives offered in Canada, payment processing, and a communication tool to keep students informed about their application status. The portal also reflects the commitment of the faculties of medicine to streamline elective workflows, timelines and policies. Information about electives is provided by the faculties. Read the faculty’s Institution Profile on the Portal for specific school policies and availability of visiting electives.

Students are encouraged to use the AFMC Student Portal's Visiting Elective Guide to explore options available across Canada. The Guide can be searched at any time without having to register or submit an application.
