    Letter of rec from program director

    Advertisements



    How important is a letter of rec from a program director for internal medicine? I know some programs want it, but will it be a deciding factor if I don't have one? Thanks.

    not program director, but usually the chair of medicine (most places they are two different people)...and yes, if a place requires it, your application is considered incomplete without it.

    if you can't get one, don't apply to those places...or call them and ask how hard and fast that rule is...
