Some programs require 1 year USCE at an SCGME accredited program. So, working at a private practice does not count.

But look it it this way: how many IMGs can get a subinternship or an observership? Just a handfull. So, you will be compared to doctors mostly with no US clinical experience. In this comparison your experience at a private clinic does count big time.

Please also look at this post as it is closely related:
