Question Observerships in Private Clinic as USCE!

Does observership in a private clinic count as USCE? I do have LORs from them.
Thanks a lot

It depends on the program you are applying to, u check their website or contact them to verify if they consider observership as USCE. Many programs consider it as USCE others need hands on experience, others consider research as experience while others not.
Best way contact them .

Completely agrees with Anders post.

Also have a look at the similar thread at the bottom of this thread, this issue discussed several times before.
