Yes, it is possible to get electives after 3rd year. It just requires a lot of persistence on your part. Read the following thread: http://medstudentz.com/medical-students-area/34-how-i-obtained-clinical-research-experience-us.htmlhey
Im a 3rd year medical student .
I was wondering is it possible to do some electives after 3rd year??? In Canada or US??? Any sort of elective clinical or research is what in looking for. So far not getting much help.
Not true.YOu can't in third year. Some programs will allow you in the fourth year, most accept international's in their last year. Third year, probably no chance.
Welcome to the forum Nada!Hi all.. my name is Nada Qawasmi, Iam a fifth year medical student from palestine..

Iam sending to ask if anyone knows organizations that help students do their elective courses in different countries.. by for example giving travel grants or any financial assistance.. i did search the web.. n found so many but none actually worked..
thanks in advance
thanks its clear God bless youMalpractice 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.
