Default Family Medicine in California (PTAL) letter

I would like to ask on the family medicine 4 week rotation required by PTAL application. Is a community medicine rotation considered the same as family medicine rotation?
Please help me if you know information about this

Hi, I am an IMG from an Indian medschool and I had the same question. Do we need to get a letter from our med school that "Family Medicine" is included under our "Community medicine" posting? Please let me know...
