Are there any forms of electives that a 3rd year can do in the US? (I am in a 5 year MD course in Europe)
Are research electives allowed?

How do you go about applying for those and finding the appropriate depts.

hey
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.
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.html

If you're actually serious about getting an elective read through that thread. It's basically a step by step guide on how to get an elective. Any question that you have has almost certainly been answered already. Good luck!

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.
Not true.

It is entirely possible to get electives in third year. In fact some people even start doing electives in 2nd year. There are pros and cons to starting electives early as compared to waiting until you have further experience, but in either case it is possible to get electives.

Welcome to the forum Nada!

Unfortunately, since an elective is solely for your own benefit you are expected to bear all costs of traveling, room & board, etc. yourself. I haven't heard of any organizations that are willing to provide travel grants. Sounds really nice though! #yes

If programs like that actually exist hopefully someone else on the forum has some information about them...

#yes
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.
thanks its clear God bless you

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??
