Question Elective and Match

If the elective was in specialty different from the specialty you are applying to, does it badly affect your application or they just look that you have an USCE?

because I'm got elective in Family medicine and I want to apply for IM.

It's OK.

You wouldn't be as strong as the applicant who has done IM electives but you are still better than the applicant who has not had USCE or has done surgery elective.
