    Thank you for the great list of options. It seems like as though more clinical electives are opening up in the USA for foreign medical students. One issue that always comes up is pricing. The USA seems to be very expensive (especially going from a currency much weaker than the dollar).

    I have had many friends in the past look into clinical electives in the USA and they are instantly turned off when the calculate the sum of money needed to complete a single elective there.
    Are there any funding options from the organizations above?

    If my school has not yet joined one of these programs, what is the procedure (as a student how can i convince my school to join)?

    Once again, thanks so much for the great info!
