EM Match Advice: VSAS 101 – Securing an away EM rotation

Dr. Michael Gisondi has recruited another all-star cast of residency program leaders around the United States to share their sage wisdom about the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). This centralized process to coordinate visiting clerkship rotations first began in 2008 and now almost all medical schools participate. Because anecdotally the VSAS application process has been challenging, we gathered some experts to share their insights in a podcast.

  • Cullen Hegarty, MD  (Regions Medical Center/ HealthPartners, Program Director)
  • Scott Sherman, MD  (Cook County, Assistant Program Director)
