Default Community hospitals

How useful in the residency process are clinical electives at community or private hospitals?

Is it only the university affiliated hospitals that make a good impression on the application or does USCE from these hospitals count too?

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Electives at community hospitals/University hospitals - don't loose them, only if they are in your desired specialty. These days it has become tough to get hands on once graduated. Grab onto which ever hands on you get before graduation
