I want to ask about my case, Our medical university curriculum contains credit hours for elective in the 6th year.
We have the choice either to do elective inside or outside (e.g USA)
Is it considered medical education where ever I do it ?

We also have a research in the curriculum in the 6th year.
What about it ?

The most important thing, Does it differs if they are medical education or experience ? in other words, What weighs more in matching ?
Anything going to be listed in your Medical School Transcript is Medical Education and anything not listed is Experience.

As for your other question.
I'd give equal weight for each of them as far as matching concerned. Perhaps, for American students, the experience part is more significant as they all have similar medical education credentials but for IMGs and CMGs I'd say experience and eduction both matters equally.
