Also detain mind that you simply wish to do and work on analysis comes at those electives which will find yourself obtaining you printed. realize places to figure at that publish lots of papers a year, and take a look at to induce clinical expertise on the facet whereas there, or the other way around. you'll be able to perpetually aid to try to to analysis even though you are there as a clinical student.

Not really. You're eligible for a housejob (which is equivalent of residency) directly after MBBS, and there are always positions open for that. If you learn a lot during your elective though, you can always put that to good use in residency/ house job.
You should spend some time reading over the other threads on electives on the forum. I'm not sure I fully understand your goals, do you want to do a surgical residency in your home country first and then go to the US after that to do a surgical residency there, OR do you want to go directly to the US and try to get a surgical residency there? If you're graduating this year then chances are it's too late for you to do an elective. If you have a four or five weeks off from your university then you might be able to do a clinical or research elective (research is always better), and yes, you will of course have to pay for everything on your own, which varies depending on where you end up going. You should be aware that you can't do electives if you've already graduated from your university. Electives are only available to medical students.
