Visiting Medical Students

Visiting Medical Students (US and International)

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth at Houston participates in the VSLO System.  All visiting medical students must apply with VSLO, upload the required documents and pay the application fee.  Applications can only move to the next phase once all requirements have been submitted.   Once your application is moved to the complete phase, our Medical Student Education office will receive it.  After review of your application by our Medical Student Education office, your information will be forwarded to our office for approval.  If approved, the Registrar’s Office will contact you with the approved rotation dates.


If you have registered in VSLO and you are interested in rotating with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery during your fourth year of medical school, please send an email to Dr. John Munz, Paula Neal and Lindsey Hale along with the documents listed below. You still need to complete your application in VSLO. This information provides us with a list of names/dates to better plan our rotations.
