Default Does YOG matter when you've practiced medicine since graduation date?

If my YOG was 2009

I took a gap without any medical training from 2009 to 2013. but then from 2013 to 2015, i did residency training in UK.

if i apply to US after that, will i be applying as an 'old grad', or would i be applying as someone who has done clinical training (in addition to whatever US clinical experience i got in 2013 through observerships).

(i am a us citizen, and assuming i complete my step 2, ck/cs, and possibly step 3 also)

i'm thinking of applying for 2016, but if i can't make it, then i'll work in UK for 1 more year, and then apply for 2017. just wanting to know if i'll be seen favorably as an already practicing doctor, despite not practicing medicine from 2009 to 2013.

thanks!
