Default Mount Sinai Clinical Electives for 2017/2018

Hello all, Im planning on applying for an elective @ mount sinai during June Or July/2017, I went to the webpage and it says " Please submit your complete application package, approximately 8-9 months in advance of the requested elective start date, to one of the following addresses ". However, written in bold at the top of the page " As of August 1, 2016, we are no longer accepting applications for Academic Year 2016–17. Applications for Academic Year 2017–18, will be accepted from January 1, 2017–August 1, 2017." So if im applying for june lets say, when do i need to apply ? and thank you !

Keep your forms ready and apply the moment application opens up.
I have attached their clinical roster for the year 2016-17 valid for their 4th year students. It might give you a better idea. In the clinical calendar their 16-17 session ends on 5th May 17

Electives for year 2017/2018 begin from june or july ? Im applying for june or july because my school doesnt allow otherwise. So if year 2017/2018 begins from july, and i had to apply for july, is there any chance they gonna accept me ? Or the american medical students are a priority ? Thank you!

You can't really say. Most of their students would likely schedule their electives at Mt Sinai Hospital so maybe you can try for their other hospitals that are listed on the International Visiting Students page. But you may be able to get even at MSH. Basically it all depends on your luck and the availability. You can contact them on the email mentioned on the website for further clarification.
Hope for the best and good luck

......And contact the email mentioned on the website for international visiting students. And try to select more from the affiliated hospitals like beth israel, st. lukes, roosevelt etc cause they will have lesser chances of getting filled by their own students. Just a suggestion.

Just tell them who you are where you are contacting from and that you are interested in their 2017-18 visiting student program and want to apply for the months june and july 2017 so would it be appropriate to apply in jan 2017 when the apps reopen? and whatever you want to know more.

Just to make sure the calendar/catalog for the 2017/2018 elective courses is not out yet right ?

Default Mount Sinai Application. Will / Will not pay tuition?

I see you guys have completed electives at Sinai. Would appreciate if you could answer a question of mine.
I am an Intern IMG. Our college requires us to complete Internship to graduate so I am a medical student. But we don't have to pay tuition for Internship/final year.

In the Visiting student form, there is a column asking whether the student will be paying tuition at the college during the dates indicated below.

As I won't be paying tuition, would I still be eligible for the electives?
Is there anyone out there who filled not pay tuition and got an elective?
