This is not a copy paste from other forums. I updated most of the links and guidelines.
If you have more updated info please post it and the staff told me that they'll edit the post accordingly.

can anyone tell what's the best time to apply for clinical electives? Is it when all the steps( step 1, step 2ck and step 2 cs) are taken? or one can apply when any one the steps(either step 1 or step 2 ck) are taken....and is there any hard and fast rule for visa status....

Warning! Best time

You have to apply as long as you're still a medstudent...and many of them require you to be in the last year(ie 6th year in a 6 year programme,or internship year in some countries).Make sure you have your step 1 and TOEFL ready.

thanks...but what about for an IMG....is clinical clerkship is necessary for an IMG, too? I'm asking because I am an IMG and I am already a doctor back in my country with an experience of one year of internship prog. Can I use those certificates to apply for it? I'm sorry, if I'm bothering you but I have a very little idea about this thing....

Arrow Not clerkship,externship

Now I also only started my quest so this is from the info I have...as far as I know after you finish medical school your are no longer eligible for clerkships, only paid externships (hands on) and observships. The list here is only for clerkships. Usually a different department deals with graduates for those two. You have to look threads in the forum about those, there are quite a few useful links for this.

Hope this helps.

Is anyone serious about TOEFL for electives? I thought only Step 1 is needed. PS guys which is the best uni for doing electives from IMG experiences? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

hello! i am a medical student from out side of U.S.A. I know this might be too much to ask, but, does anyone know if there is a school that does not require neither Step 1 nor TOEFL and nor a "student is his/her last year of medical school".
I am planning on taking the elective before my last year.
i would appreciate any input.
thanks

Thanks Yallah for this. I just checked out the Baylor college of medicine website. Turns out that the application for IMGs is undergoing some changes?? Are they still accepting imgs?
Thanks

Guys this is really depressing. I checked out all the websites . Baylor doesn't offer electives for IMGs right now. Seems like there's always something missing like for example where am I supposed to get letters of recommendation in my home country for the elective from? Also some require completion of clerkships. some need sponsors. the thing is I wont be finished with psychiatry by summer time but i would be finished with everything else..some don't fit the calendar ie you can't do them in the summer....any idea where is a decent place to do electives that isn't complicated? I have Step1 and TOEFL scores and I'll be done with almost all the clerkships except psychiatry :S any ideas....or help on what I should do? Seriously how did you guys do this?
