Post visit reimbursement approval
Most interviews are scheduled approximately two to four weeks from the date we are notified of your upcoming visit.

We have a standard procedure for candidate visits (although flexible according to candidate schedules, airline schedules, etc.). If this does not work for you, please let us know your preferences and we will strive to accommodate your schedule. If the candidate lives within a 250 mile radius of Vanderbilt, driving is required. See below for reimbursement information regarding use of personal vehicle or vehicle rental. Otherwise, if the candidate lives outside of this radius, we will prepay airline travel, hotel accommodations and ground transportation through our contract companies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: VU SOM will not reimburse or cover the cost of early bird check in fees or additional baggage for any airline. If you opt to utilize any of these services, you will be responsible for payment. 07.01.10
