Default Is hands-on clinical experience considered as USCE?

Hello everyone!

I have been reading every thread on this matter on every forum available, but could not find a good answer. I graduated last year and have been working in one of the best university hospitals in New York City as a clinical research fellow since I graduated. I was involved in 2 major multi-central studies and several small ones, took history from hundreds of patients and did PE, attended rounds and case presentations and presented some myself, was involved in many discussions on patient care, worked closely with residents and fellows and built good relations with them, published several studies in international peer-reviewed journals (with reputations ranging from medium to very good) and presented several poster in national and international conferences, and finally got excellent LORs from 2 renowned senior professors describing all the activity above in detail. I know that most basic/clinical research experience are not considered as USCE by most programs, but since I have been dealing with patients all this time, spent a lot of time in the clinical areas, and got very good LORs explaining all these, I was wondering if this would be considered as USCE by programs. I only did 2 months of observership other than this.

I would really appreciate any contribution or comment...
