California My med school curriculum and California L5 Form

It is mentioned by Sabio that when we apply for the California letter, the minimum hours for Psychiatry needs to be 80 hr in form L5. Will my med school curriculum like the following be rejected?
Internal medicine: 198 hr;
Surgery: 207 hr;
OB/GYN: 99 hr;
Pediatrics: 81 hr;
Neurology & Psychiatry: 80 hr;
Infectious disease & Epidemiology: 72 hr;
otorhinolaryngology: 45 hr;
ophthalmology: 45 hr;
stomatology: 20 hr;
Dermatology: 45hr.

Will I only need to fill in 6 clinical subjects (Internal medicine; Surgery; OB/GYN; Pediatrics; Neurology & Psychiatry; Infectious disease & Epidemiology) as only 6 rolls in the form.

Thanks.

Soso

Hi Steptaker,
for L5 form do they want clinical rotations completed from my second year to final year? Or are they interested in my compulsory internship that was completed after passing my final MBBS?
