    I place 3rd & 4th year medical students on international rotations. This book is perfect, a bit costly but still worth it, for helping medical student figure out where they would like to go in the world and what hoops they will need to jump through in regards to country and the medical facilities' requirements.

    This book, although a few years old, still contains a great deal of current information. Organized by country, it gives great little overviews of each country's social and medical situation and lists numerous hospitals, clinics, and organizations with available electives for medical students. These descriptions are generally succinct, and include information about available specialties, strengths/weaknesses, accomodations, etc. The range of electives is great - everything from large urban hospitals to rural clinics and traveling docs' services. Additionally, the book lists contact information for other hospitals, even if there's no specifically described elective. It also has specialty sections, covering such things as expedition and wilderness medicine. The book is also useful to just get those wheels churning - you might come up with ideas for projects and electives just because you came across a particular country or practice setting that you hadn't though of before. The only negative is that the funding sources listed, while numerous, are mainly only relevant for EU residents. I highly recommend this book as a resource for medical students (primarily in the clinical years of training) looking to do a clinical elective abroad.
