Default What are some hospitals expecting regarding hands-on USCE?

I'm confused as to what the program directors mean by hands-on USCE when they have a message like this posted on their residency program eligibility criteria:

"After completing at least one (1) year of hands-on employment as a physician in a U.S. or Canadian healthcare facility, candidates must submit their applications through ERAS.
Note: Externships or observerships and clerkships or internships for which the candidate has paid for training do not meet the requirement for one year of experience. The only exception is for those medical schools offering United States clerkships that are completed as a student prior to graduation from medical school."

Can somebody explain this?

i think it is very clear that 1 year of internship is needed for application and private paid for externships dont count towards it. may i know which program has this specification? i hope it is not the case with most programs because many of us may not get the opportunity to rack in a year of training even if we can accomodate the costs somehow...
wish some senior person can clear this doubt for all of us.

Pretty sure it is what it sound it is. In practical terms: US/Canadian/Caribbean students only!

Those programs should be in the minority though (most usually require none/up to 3 months of USCE).
