Default What do program directors mean by years after graduation?

I finished my medical university in 2016,but after the university we also have 1 year internship.
So do they start counting the years after finishing the university or they start counting the years once you finished your internship?:confused :

after graduation you become a PGY1 (post graduate year 1) and that is generally intern year.

years from graduation is what they are referring to.
