Question USCE before final year?

Hi!
I'm a italian medical student, I'll start in October my 3rd year (of 6 years in total).
I really want to do some USCE but, as far as I read, most of them are only for students in their last med-school year.
I plan to take Step 1 in summer/fall 2014 and I plan to do some experience in USA during the next summers (2015, 2016, 2017 that will be my final year).
For what I read seems that the best option is to do some elective, since I'm still in medical school.
Is there any way to do some USCE if I'm not in my final year?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

I think your best bet will be to apply for research elective at JHU , this is basically a research for 2 months , and you don't need to be final year student like the clinical one .
This will help you and boost your CV when applying for clinical electives later on and even research opportunities after that.

Thank you for the advice!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that this research elective will not count as USCE, but unfortunately there isn't a USCE opportunity for not final year student. Is this right?
