Visiting Medical Students

The 2024 Visiting Student Sub-I application season has opened. Please visit the AAMC VSLO website for more information and to apply for Urology 401C.

Registration for visiting students opens March 13, 2024, and closes April 26, 2024.

All official offers for clerkships will come from the Duke School of Medicine’s Student Services Officer, Mr. Scott Campbell (, 919-684-8042).  

Welcome to Duke Urology. We appreciate your interest in urology and our program. Duke is a top research and training institution, and we’re consistently ranked as one of the best urology programs in the country by U.S.News & World Report. We think you’ll agree that Duke Urology is a great place to develop and learn.

It is our pleasure to welcome visiting fourth-year medical students to spend four weeks rotating with our program as urology subinterns. As a subintern, you will be an integral part of the clinical team and exposed to a range of experiences, including some of the most innovative treatments available.

Subinterns are expect to:

  • Participate in the operating room
  • Accompany the on-call residents
  • Participate in in-patient rounds
  • Participate in departmental educational conferences

You will have the opportunity to participate meaningfully in patient care while you showcase and sharpen your clinical and surgical skills and demonstrate and develop your ability to perform the core activities expected of a house officer. During your rotation, you will also work closely with our faculty, fellows, and residents, which will give you a feel for what life is like during urology training and beyond.

We also encourage our sub-Is to spend time appreciating the many activities and experiences the Triangle and North Carolina have to offer. Our goal is for you to return to your home institution with the understanding of the culture of Duke’s Urology Program and with the knowledge of what it takes to be a successfully resident and urologist.

We accept a maximum of four subinterns per rotation block. Students are welcome to submit applications for more than one rotation block. More information about our fourth-year subinternship is available through VSLO and the Urology Subinternship (Urology 401C) page.
