HI guys,
for those of you who can help me to decide if my experience in clinical research would be considered as USCE, I worked under supervision by contacting research subjects, examining their readiness for the research study, checking their labs, referring them for specialists if they needed to be cleared on some health issue, and following up with them after the research study.

doesn't it considered USCE in addition to research experience?

thanks for the help in advance.

USCE is hands on medical experience gained while in the United States. Programs want to see that you have actually practiced medicine in the US.

This is usually in the form of externships, clerkships and rarely, observerships.

If your experiences were hands on and preferably in an institutional setting then it should count. To be extra safe, I would call programs and see what they consider USCE.
