Listening electives: what specialty?

Hi guys!

I am not sure at all about what specialty I want to go into.
So when I plan electives, what specialties should I chose?
I am guessing it would be good having USCE in the specialty I will actually apply to one day, right?
What if I had USCE, but only in other specialties?

I am looking for tips, suggestions. Maybe someone has experienced the same.

It is ok to get USCE in other speciality. It is not easy to get significant US clinical experience, and it is harder to get specifically in your area of interest, specially I is a competitive one.
