International Students


Students Attending Non-US based Medical Schools

Thank you for your interest in a rotation at Kaweah Delta Health Care District:

Kaweah Delta Health Care District does not accept international medical students except those with whom we have affiliation agreements. Rare exceptions are made, when medical students have very close ties to the Central Valley and meet the requirements of the Medical Board of California.

For further consideration as an applicant, please send a letter of interest that documents your close and specific ties to the Central Valley area. Please also send a copy of your medical school transcripts and USMLE board scores.

Your letter, transcripts and board scores will be reviewed by the Office of Graduate Medical Education Clerkship Director. You will be contacted within several weeks of receipt of paperwork with the decision or pending items.

Please also note that if you are accepted, a clerkship rotation fee will apply and must be paid in full before the rotation starts. The Medical Student Coordinator will be in contact with you regarding the next steps.

Please submit required paperwork (letter, transcripts and USMLE board scores) directly to the GME office via email at to the  Medical Student Clerkship Coordinator.
