You may choose to perform electives at a medical school other than your own, either in the United States or abroad. You should apply in early spring. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has complied an online list of all LCME-accredited schools, addresses, phone numbers, and contact names in regard to setting up fourth year electives. The AAMC also has compiled an online extramural electives compendium containing essential information for medical students about planning for elective opportunities at LCME-accredited medical schools in the U.S.A. and Canada.
