Default Worth applying to programs with...

Is it worthy applying to programs that require 3 LoR and one of them to be from Chairman of Dept. of Medicine if your a IMG? I have read places that its only a requirement for AMG however not sure?

As i am completing my programs list i have noticed about 1 in 10 programs would like you to have this, so if anyone knows if its a strict requirement, please do let me know.
