I'm very confused here guys .... I'm an international medical student who wanna do some clinical electives in the US ... I'll be able to do so during January & Februay... I'll try to arrange additional time but that's what I can get now.. I found a place in an ER elective at the university of Vermont during jan... but I also got positive input from Tuft's university about 2 electives in surgery(ped surg & general/oncology surg) .. so i don't know what to decide ... stay 1 month at vermont in an ER elective then do the other month at Tuft's ... or shall i do the 2 electives in Tuft's ; i think if i did so i'll also apply for an ER elective at Tuft's which is available; i guess so (as the elective coordinator told me). I'm interested in surgery but also need the wide exposure & orientation with different cases through emergency medicine .... p.s: I'll pay $2000 per month in Tuft's , but this isn't an issue. i can handle this ... but i wonder if it worth it.... i saw the best med school rank; Tuft's is #37 while Vermont isn't there... does this reflect anything related to clinical education?? cause the rank is titled "best 50 schools in research" plz i must take a decision ASAP ... thanks..
