Question Elective without pediatrics completed?

Hello everybody, I am student currently in the 5th out of 6 years in the Czech Republic. I recently got my step 1 results (255), and I am looking for an elective for this summer.

My problem is the following: most reputable university hospitals ask for students who have completed all their "core clinical clerkships" including Pediatrics. In my school Pediatrics is on the 6th year, and I will not have completed it by this summer.

Does anybody know of any good program I might be able to attend for an elective course in Internal Medicine without having completed Pediatrics?Any advice on this topic would be appreciated.
