Default [URGENT] Visa for elective

Hello ,
I am a final year medical student from India studying in Nepal . I just got an invitation letter for a 4 week elective this summer . They have advised me to apply for a B1 visa , but when I dug up some information on this visa it appears that it does not entitle one to a certificate / document for the duration of stay .
If I don't get a document to show for my elective doesn't it render it useless ?
Does nobody get any proof of doing an elective after they are done with it on a B1 visa ?
Is there any other visa type I should apply for that would guarantee me a letter/document/certificate to add to my resume ?

Any quick help/response would be highly appreciated since I have really small window to apply for the visa .
