Collecting the BTA diploma (Been to America) has always been regarded as a shrewd career move for doctors aiming for the highest echelons of medical practice in Britain. One way of getting a toehold on the continent is to do an elective period there; getting hold of a copy of Non-standard medical electives in the US and Canada, a new guide to electives for students and residents would be a useful first step. Contacts for electives in specialties from aerospace medicine to trauma are offered, with advice on arranging your elective. Iserson KS. Non-standard medical electives in the US and Canada.
