If you are thinking about a core-curriculum elective rotation then it would probably not recognized, only ACGME-accredited rotations are considered.

However, if you are just doing that to get some US LoRs, then I would say yes, it would be considered a US LoR.

Make sure they write the LoR and Cleveland Letterhead paper and make sure the letter writer is a US board certified physician.

The LoR should be written by a physician on the hospital paper, so the physician should sign and mention his complete details, like title, position, contact information ...etc
