Generally, a qualified applicant will be limited to one month of elective study. The IUSM 2015-16 Electives Catalog is available now. 

For electives beginning July 1, 2015, IUSM will only accept MD student applications through the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) online system.
