Default Psych requirements

Hi! I am an IMG from India and I want to know if we require a 4 weeks psych rotation in med school to match. I've heard Illinois, California and some places have this requirement for getting a license to practice. In india we have 2 weeks of psych rotation in 2nd year of med school and then 2 weeks in our internship. Does that count as 4 weeks or do I need to do 2 more weeks of elective psych? Any help would be appreciated

I think it counts. I had same issues from Pakistan I did 2 weeks - 2weeks but not all 4 weeks together. And they counted it as 4 weeks as they actually look at the number it self.
