Clerkship is a general term that can refer to any of the following:

1) core medical school clerkships, core rotation that you have to do before you are granted graduate status. In that case, you don't need to mention it in ERAS, unless it's outside the country of your medical school.

2) Elective clerkship, that's not a med school requirement. In that case you can list it in medical education.

3) Postgraduation clerkship, such as externships and observerships, in that case you can list it in work experience.
