Nova Southeastern University/Broward Health Medical Center offers observership open to current 3rd or 4th year students of accredited United States or Canadian dental or medical schools. Observership can be arranged for 1 to 4 week blocks.
Due to the high volume of applicants for the observership position, and time for processing of paperwork, submit applications no less than 2 months prior to desired rotation start-date. No housing is provided for visiting students. Visiting students will need to make their own housing arrangements. All expenses involved in the externs stay will be the responsibility of the extern.
Students seeking observership must provide the following:
- A letter of recommendation from your OMFS faculty.
- A letter from your school's Dean verifying that you are in good standing.
- Documentation of health insurance coverage during your planned visit.
- Documentation of Malpractice coverage.
- Proof of required immunizations.
Once accepted to the observership program, observers will need to complete the Broward Health Medical Center Medical Student Orientation requirements prior to the start date of any observership. These requirements can be found here.
