Does anyone know why US citizens who are studying medicine in a foreign country are not allowed to do electives outside of the US or the country they are studying in? I am not sure if this applies to every school, but I would like to see a good reason why this is true, especially if the hospital in the other country has a well organized electives program. Also, if you know any foreign schools that do allow their students to do electives in countries other than where they study or where they have their citizenship, it would be much appreciated! Thanks!!
