Help Observerships as USCE?

Are observerships counted under USCE or in other words- are observerships recognized as USCE.

If the answer to this is a no, then would it mean that the only benefit in getting an observership is to get LOR's from the physician you would be shadowing?

Kindly drop in your comments.
Sabio also, please comment too.

Thank you.

It depends on the program. I have seen some programs mentioning on their website that they consider observership as USCE, while others, they don't consider it USCE.
