Info Some Information about Electives and Clerkships

Hello,
I'm a Canadian citizen studying medical science(MBBS) in China, and I'm in my final year (5th year).
After this year, we all are required to do one year of electives to obtain our degree, without the electives we are still considered "undergraduates".
So i am just researching on the net on how to do this electives in US as I'm planning to give USLME after graduation to move closer to my family in Canada.
I just need some information about the electives.
would be greatly appreciated.

Thank for your time, looking forward to hear back from you.

i am not sure if they accept for 1 year or not but u should first go to the international visiting student page on university websites then find the registrars office email or a person and send an email asking if you can apply for 1 year. as i know many universitis accept for max 3 month. if u have step1 score and toefl then you have many chance to aplly for. if you dont have these scores, harvard, yale and cornell is the only universities as i searched accept stdents without score. i hope this info will help you

and don forget to check the website: electives.us

Thanx...but what if the elective form necessarily asks for the insurance?
and where did you do your electives from?
also i wanted to know, i was on a leave for a few weeks to prepare for step 1 so that extended my graduation date for the same tenure so while applying for electives what should i mention as my expected graduation date?

for your first question this is the answer:

''If you are not accepted into a clinical rotation, your money will be refunded to you, however you must notify us prior to the start date of your elective, along with a letter from the school notifying you were not accepted. If you need to cancel the policy for any other reason, please notify us at least 14 days prior to the coverage start date. ''

for second quest i dont know sorry )
