Hi Priti, welcome to the forums! #grin

In regards to your first question about how to obtain an observership or research electives, I'd recommend you read this thread and then if you have any questions post them in that same thread.

Also, be sure to read this thread regarding some advice on how to study for the USMLE Step 1 exam.

Priti, that sounds like a great plan -- I would recommend you leave a good 7-8 month margin for all your paperwork (visas, ecfmg paperwork, etc) to be all cleared as that does take some time to usually be processed. Because cost of living in the US will be much more than India I would recommend you just stay and work as a Jr Doc in India until it is time for you to go for interviews for the 2008 match. Also if you could schedule your interviews to be pretty close in date, you could fly and drive to your different interview locations while minimizing your expense.

I hope this helps! #laugh

hello^^ im new to the forums! i am from Syria, where we have a 6 year program for medschool. i have just finished my third year. i was planning on going to the US for a clinical elective after my 4th year, but i am being discouraged by many people telling me that i havent got a chance since almost all medschools require the visiting students to be "in their final year of medschool" ..i WILL try applying anyway..but i also thought to consider doing a research. if anyone could please answer :
1- to do a research do u have to be in ur final year of medschool as well?
2- what are the best medschools/institutions/hospitals etc to do a reasearch in?
3- any specific recommendations??

Thanks very much i look forward to any helpful replies :D

Hi everyone! Do electives related with PG Courses? Is it possible to choose a course that is not at all related with our elective, which was chosen during our degree course?
