Strategy to Match in General Surgery
I'm a 4th-year/6years student from Spain. I've obtained a Step 1 score of 264 and I'm looking for elective rotations in general surgery or any other surgical specialty. After reading many websites I've understood that I can't be eligible for any elective program until I'm in my last year of career. It is possible to find exceptions to this? And if it is definitive, when would I be able to do elective rotations? In the summer before my last year in University, the summer after finishing?? I tell you that because my school doesn't let me do more than 2-month rotation outside Spain and I have read that to apply for a surgical program you need much more USCE than 2 months...
