Default Years after graduation ?

I have heard that during the interview the program directors want to know about how many years ago did you graduate.
So do they start counting those years after you finish your <medical university> or they start counting the years after you finished your <internship>?

The date of graduation begins from time of completion of internship. Internship is still considered medical school

Just a question as well..

Since, here in my country, we have 3 years of theory based, and 1 year of clinical AKA internship. And required to take part in a 1 year mandatory internship year, which is prior to taking the local licensure exams.

So, do i consider the date of my 4th year internship or consider to count after the 1 year mandatory internship year?
