Question Electives and ECFMG Clerkship question

Hi everyone
I have a query about my electives which i did during my final year.
I did 2 months electives outside my country on my own in cardiac surgery and otolaryngology, do i have to mention this in ECFMG clerkship column.

Also, I did these during my ongoing curriculum and missed my rotations at own medical school but on return completed them at a later date...but problem is that my medical school refused to issue a transcript of those rotations at a later date,,and now the dates for my electives and core rotations are same...any solution for it guys??...plz help me out

is it possible that i don't mention these electives now and mention it when am applying for the residency position?...

Default Don't mention it

Anything not mentioned in your transcript is not considered clerkship. So don't mention it when you apply to the ECFMG.

Yes. you can include it in your common application form in ERAS when you apply for the residency match later on.

Which column?
The online ECFMG registration asks you to say YES or NO.
Answer NO.
