Some schools that accept foreign medical students for clinical electives without STEP 1:

Harvard Medical School
Brown Medical School
Mt. Sinai
Feinberg School of Medicine (Northwestern University)
University of California, Irvine
University of California, San Diego
University of California, San Francisco
Baylor College of Medicine
University of North Carolina


I'm sure there's more, these are just some that I was able to think of off the top of my head.

you should search "visiting students" on the official website of which ever college you want to attend for elective, click the clinical elective link and the website will guide you through the whole procedure about how to apply for the elective and still if you need to clear something, you can contact the elective co-ordinator or the registrars office and they will help you in the best possible way.

Malpractice insurance is a type of security that you pay to an insurance company in case you make some sort of a mistake while treating/examining a patient which causes the patient harm. If you do, the patient then has the option to sue you- meaning he has a right to demand monetary compensation, which the insurance company will pay for you, since you paid them the malpractice insurance.

You need to pay that if you want to do a clinical elective and want to have significant patient interaction.

Hi I am new here and I have just completed my USMLE step 1. I'm an IMG and i didn't do so well in my step 1. I really want to get an elective in the U.S. I'm just wondering which are the good hospitals/Uni to apply for if i am a 4th year student and not a final year student. Are there any chances of me getting a position?

Heyy... I'm, new to this post and I'm currently studying in China as an IMS. I have contacted few hospitals about doing my clerkship there and many have told me they only provide electives. I'm a bit confused on that. I know my 5th year should be my clerkship to complete my medical training at my University, so where do electives come to par?

Really confused! help??
