Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO)
The Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO), formerly VSAS, is an AAMC application designed to make it easier for medical students to apply for senior electives at U.S. medical schools and teaching hospitals. VSAS is designed to streamline the application process for senior "away" electives at U.S. medical schools and independent academic medical centers. With VSAS, the applicant only needs one application for all participating institutions, reducing paperwork, miscommunication, and time. Each site has the option of inserting their own criteria and costs, however.
