Question Volunteered at Detroit Medical Centre. Good for my CV or not?

Hi, I'm an IMG, looking forward to the 2015 match. This year, I volunteered for 2 months at Detroit Medical Centre, during which I actually shadowed a doctor in the internal medicine department. My letter from DMC says this:

To whom it may concern:

This letter is to verify that Ms. abc has completed her hours of volunteering/Internal Medicine Rotation service at Sinai-Grace Hospital.

Ms. abc shadowed under the direction of Dr. xyz. Ms. abc was professional, dependable and capable of performing each task assigned to her.

It was truly a pleasure having abc as a part of our team. If you need any further information regarding the above please do not hesitate to contact me.

Ms. fgh
Volunteer Coordinator.
Sinai-Grace Hospital.

Though, I'll get a separate letter of recommendation made by the doctor, I'm not sure if the letter above is good enough...

What do you guys think?

It's good. Any form of volunteering is good.
