The Help Our Students Travel (HOST) Program connects current UI Carver College of Medicine students and trainees exploring residency and fellowship opportunities with alumni "hosts" around the country. 


Need local insight? Network with alumni across the nation to get a local perspective.  

This year, the HOST (Help Our Students Travel) Program has gone virtual. HOST connects current UI Carver College of Medicine students with CCOM alumni across the nation. 

Alumni give you invaluable advice and insights about their local community as you are doing virtual residency and fellowship interviews. Connect with alumni based on city, state, specialty, and your terms via e-mail, phone, FaceTime, and others. You have the questions; alumni may have the insights. 


Interested in connecting virtually with a UI Carver College of Medicine student interviewing with a residency or fellowship program in your city? Register today, or email to learn more.  


Medical Students: Applying outside of Iowa City? Ask our alumni about their experiences or city. 

If you are a student or trainee looking for a virtual host and/or if you want to know more about a community that interests you, connect with one of our CCOM alumni who are located all over the United States.
