Information for Onshore Domestic & International Students

The Ochsner Clinical School offers students the opportunity to experience a medical education from two world-class academic medical institutions: UQ Medicine and the Ochsner Health System in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Students who are not part of the Ochsner cohort (onshore domestic and international students) have the opportunity to apply for Year 4 placements at the Ochsner Clinical School. Placements are subject to availability. Please refer to Ochsner Clinical School Placements for details to apply.

Please refer to the information listed below for details specifically related to clinical placements at Ochsner.

    3. Confirmation of placement documents

    Students will receive official documentation from the Ochsner Clinical School Administration once a clinical placement is approved by the Faculty of Medicine.  This will also consist of letters addressed to the student and to both the U.S. Embassy and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) explaining the clinical placement, duration, and qualifications to help students and Consular Officers better understand how students qualify for the B-1 visa application process.  Students should keep these documents and have them, along with a valid passport, available during travel to verify their reason for entering the United States.

    Students who have not received confirmation documents and are approved for a placement at Ochsner should contact the Ochsner Clinical School Administrative Office.
