Welcome to campus

Visit Case Western Reserve University's uniquely urban campus, located in the heart of Cleveland's cultural hub, University Circle. Plan your trip:


International electives are elective activities that take place outside of the United States. All CWRU medical students are required to submit international rotations to the CWRU Office of Education Abroad using their electronic application. Once the application has been completed, the SOM Registrar will be notified to register the elective for senior medical students meeting graduation requirements.


  1. Students interested in international electives must carefully review the International Programs protocol and complete the new Education Abroad application online: The paper version of the application form is no longer accepted.
  2. Contact information for additional application information:
    1. University Students – Joseph Williams (
    2. College Students – Darlene Gray (
  3. The Required Signatures document must include all three pages of the Application Questionnaire including two required signatures (Dr. Blanton and Society Dean/Physician Advisor).

After your online application has been completed (all required documents uploaded) the SOM Registrar will enroll the student in the elective, which adds it to the transcript. Students must use CAS for the clinical rotation. Education Abroad requires a program report and final assessment upon return from any rotation abroad.
