Canadian Student Application Process

Canadian students may enroll in a maximum of eight (8) weeks of electives. We will do our best to register you for the elective of your choice; however, given the high level of interest in elective study at Weill Cornell, students are advised to provide several alternative elective choices and/or rotation blocks. As a reminder, only dates in accordance with the Weill Cornell Medical College Academic Calendar will be considered.
