​​​​​​Dear Applicants,

All Medical Students ​who have completed their Basic Sciences Curriculum are eligible to apply for an elective at the American University of Beirut. Kindly check below the application and the list of requirements.
  • Visiting students can participate in medical programs that are in progress. Special programs cannot be devised to suit special requirements by the student or their sponsors. Participation in clerkship educational and training activity should not impose any liability on the Faculty of Medicine.
  • Application process: Available clerkships are assigned on first-come first-served basis. Application will not be processed until completed form is received including applicant’s transcript of record and $50 non-refundable processing fee. Upon acceptance into a clerkship rotation, a clerkship fee of $ 50 will be collected.
  • Tuition fee: The Faculty of Medicine does not impose a tuition fee for the clerkship of visiting students if the duration of stay is eight weeks or less. Students who wish to spend more than eight  weeks will be subject to payment of tuition fees equivalent to US$ 3,000 for each additional four weeks.
  • Visiting students must wear white gowns on the floors. Visiting students should provide their own gowns.
