Hospital clinical experience in private clinic

I have been working under a Pediatrician who is affliated to a medical college But I have been working her private office in New York.Infact he is a co-ordinator of Fellowship program in his hospital. I am involved in history taking and writing Patient Notes.. He encourages me to participate in formulation of diagnosis and even discusses cases with me..

My question is :
1. does this count as USCE??
2. And if its USCE can it be counted as EXTERNSHIP or should i mention it as OBSERVERSHIP??
3. I am personally interested in Internal Medicine so can this clinical experience be valuable in my application for Internal Medicine??

Ones i contacted with ameri clerkship .... I asked them does touching patient in private clinic counted as USCE .... They said yes .... But few residency program require clinical setting externship .... And one Program director , told me ..... if possible talk to some doctor you know and ask them if they let you take history or do physical .... So i think it good .... Its better to get LoR from IM or related speciality doctors .....
