    Are these connections valuable?

    Advertisements



    I was sponsored by a small community hospital in my hometown to finish medical school. There's a teaching hospital close by with residency programs that I've applied to. I asked people at my community hospital for help: the previous CEO (she retired a couple of years ago), director of physician recruitment, the brother of a senator etc. I haven't worked with any physicians in the teaching hospital directly so I'm wondering how valuable these connections will be.

    They would only be "valuable" if they can make you stand out, highlighting aspects of your personality so extensively that hospitals and physicians want you on their team. Since you havent worked with any physicians directly and they dont seem apt enough to comment on any of that, I wouldnt recommend getting the LOR from them. Does not matter what position they hold if they can't make you look good
