These rotations are typically 4 weeks and are competitively approved by Dr. Tracy Downs. Interested students should submit:


• A letter of interest addressed to Dr. Downs
• A current CV
• A Personal Statement


Please apply by March 31 as initial rotation decisions for visiting students will be made on April 15 or shortly thereafter.
