Question Electives at ACGME-accredited hospital outside US

Guys, back at med school I did electives at a hospital which is ACGME accredited but it's outside US (located in the Middle East). Do you think that can count as a USCE? I know that by definition that should be US experience, but since this hospital is accredited.. I would appreciate your opinions

- could you elaborate on this a bit more? You mean that programs get accreditation every year, so this hospital might turn out not be accredited after this July?

I'm not sure what exactly the process is but I'm sure at the moment there isn't any ACGME accredited institute in the middle east. If you give me the name I'll verify for you personally
