Question Where to put Electives in ERAS?

I have read both options in this forum. Any suggestions?
I wanted to put it on medical education, but it needs more specifics like degree earned and expected degree date.

HANDS ON: i mean university based elective, with insurance, as a medical student.

Wouldn't it be part of your training if it is as a medical student? You have to do it to get your degree, so it's just part of your 4 or 6 year Med School.
I didn't put all that infomration in, as we did a lot of electives / clerkships.

I do, however, name the observerships / hands-on while in the US, which would be volunteer work I guess.

Of course I'm talking about the USA electives, i should have specified that. Did you put that on volunteer?

Yes, I did. It's not paid so it's volunteer work...
