Default Does a fellowship count as USCE?

Seeing as I'm an old graduate (8 yrs!) and I've already finished a residency in my home country, would getting a one yr fellowship first increase my chances to match? I'm already finishing paperwork for a fellowship program but I just want to make sure I'm not wasting time. I had 2 months of observerships but no other hands-on clinical experience and my scores are very average (228 step 1, 229 step 2, pass CS all first attempts + step 3 221). I don't think I can afford taking time off to spend another few months in the USA for more observerships, so a fellowship seemed like a better option. Would this help strengthen my application or is it a waste of time?
