Default Research electives in US-Help!

Hi. Im a second year medical student from India. I wanted to increase my chances of getting good clinical electives by doing a research elective in January next year, My college is in a remote area and I was told that by doing a research elective from a reputable institute I could make good contacts and having a US institute on my CV would compensate my lack of a famous college.

The only place I could find online was Johns Hopkins. I want to apply early, but their calendar does not have dates for 2015. Which dates should i write in the form. Also, which are the other med schools that offer research electives?
Thanks in advance for the suggestions
