It depends on the length of time you've been out of med school. If you are a fresh graduate with little out-of-med-school experience then probably your college Professors LoRs are rather crucial but on the other hand if you have 2 or more years since graduation then LoRs from your practice (US or non-US) would be more appropriate.

The Program Directors would like to know what you have been doing in the last two years and they'd love to see LoRs supporting your recent CV activities.
