Students interested in doing rotations in pediatrics or pediatric subspecialties at Children's Hospital Boston should contact the Registrar's Office at Harvard Medical School.

Students can rank up to three electives for a given month. The Registrar gives priority to Harvard Medical students, so outside students sometimes won't know their elective until a few weeks before it begins. If all their choices are full, the Registrar will check if there are any vacancies in the less popular electives.
Students interested in doing rotations at Boston Medical Center should contact the Registrar's office at Boston University School of Medicine. BUSM does not accept international medical students for elective rotations.

Boston Medical Center and Harvard Medical School have well-established Minority Recruitment Programs. These programs provide housing and financial assistance for travel.
Observerships: Neither Children's Hospital or Boston Medical Center encourage rotations where students function simply as observers.
