Block Dates

Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware follows the academic calendar set by Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, our primary academic partner. The block dates are listed below. When filling out your application form, we strongly recommend you apply to visit us on these dates. While some rotations may be able to accommodate students on dates that are different to those listed below, being unable to rotate on these dates may jeopardize your chances of being offered a rotation. Block 11 is a longer block because it includes a mandatory 2-week course for the Jefferson students, however we have flexibility in terms of how we can schedule visiting students this block.
