International Exchange Programs

Einstein does not accept international students or students from non-accredited LCME medical schools for elective courses, excluding pre-approved students from one of Einstein’s established Student Exchange Programs listed below.

All international Exchange Students must obtain a mandatory F-1 visa to participate once you are accepted into the elective course. Once accepted to the elective, Einstein’s Office of the Registrar and the Office of International Services (OIS) will prepare the I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status form. This form will be sent to you, along with instructions to obtain the F-1 visa from a US Embassy/Consulate abroad.

We strongly encourage international Exchange Students to submit applications 6 months in advance of your chosen elective’s start date and must contain all requested information and documentation, school seal, and signatures from both the student and the appropriate school official.

Einstein only accepts applications from officially pre-approved students who are affiliated with these international Exchange Programs.  Please contact your home medical school to determine your eligibility to gain pre-approval of the Exchange Program.
