Default Externship is not USCE

Ok now here is the question.
On the website of the program it states they require 12 month/ year of United States Clinical Experience, externship is not USCE.

is this true for other who dont put externship is not USCE or does all the programs require this.

this USCE is becoming something really weird to figure out now

during my search I noticed they saying that observership and researches are not USCE so I think that would be it, the program you are talking about is saying between brackets (we need a preliminary year) I think

It is a requirement which varies from program to program. u ll have to check the individual websites. when they mention hands on inpatient experience, they mean clerkship/elective. when they just say usce they would accept clerkship/externship/observership..
