The language certificate is required with the AF. We also suggest students to bring a conversation guide for basic knowledge of local language.

The requirements would usually be 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, however this varies a lot, depending on the department.
Exchange students work under the same conditions as Brazilian students, and must obey all the regulations of the hospital and the tutor.

We expect the exchange student to participate seriously and actively at the department.

No formal clothes needed, but the white coat with long leaves is mandatory. A T-shirt, jeans and any closed shoes are the most common options. Some LCs can ask for white clothes depending on the departments.

The minimum attendance required is 80%. Any absences must be agreed with the tutor in advance and LEO. Besides being allowed to skip 20% of the working days, the student must not skip all those days in a row, if this happens, it becomes a 3 week clerkship and it should be agreed upon the AF submission.

Vaccination is mandatory! Students must have immunization for yellow fever.

Cities Remarks
We have about 70 LC's eagerly waiting to receive students, with good Academic Quality and amazing Social Programs. As we receive a big amout of students each month, specially in July and August, is difficult to place everyone in their first option. Also, keep in mind that this is an Professional Exchange and not vacation time, so IF there's no spots on the desired cities, we'll place the students on their desired departments.

Therefore, the student must follow these instructions:
1. Student must choose only one option from group A and group B
2. Student can choose up to 3 different options from group C
(Ex.: ABC or ACC or BCC or CCC)

Group A: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Niterói, Florianopolis, Recife, João Pessoa and Vitória

Group B: Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Brasília, Teresópolis, São Luis

Group C: All the others (Actives LCs in 2021) --> Ouro Preto, Vassouras, Colatina, Itajubá, Vespasiano, Divinópolis, Betim, Pouso Alegre, Jundiaí, Mogi das Cruzes, Botucatu, São José do Rio Preto, Jundiaí, Itajaí, Rio Grande, Anápolis, Manaus, Vitória da Conquista

The student must choose 3 DIFFERENT CITIES.

AF's that don't match these statements will be sent back or placed based on the departments choices.

The places available in certain cities are very limited, so we can't always place in the desired city.

The Professional Exchange is the main Focus!


Calendar Remarks
July and August are really crowded! AFs for this months must be sent up to the March Meeting and as early as possible.
We have a smaller capacity for December and January, AFs for this months must be sent until the end of August.

We will warn the NEOs when we are close to our limit and will prioritize the AFs sent earlier.

Special requests can be made and will be analized individually.

If you want to be placed with someone, even in the same city, please send the AF number of your friend as an observation on your AF. If the AF came with only the name of the other incoming we will ignore the request. Also, if the person who you want to come together is coming with IFMSA Brazil, please write on the side of the AF number IFMSA Brazil.

AFs that want to be placed together must be send together, if only one of them is sent we will locate the incomings as if he/she was coming alone.
