    letters of recommendation

    Advertisements



    I am applying for the 2014 match internal medicine and I am currently trying to get doctors to upload letters of recommendation for me.


    Throughout my rotations 7 doctors have agreed to write letters for me. I have e-mail all of them asking them to submit letters to the ERAS.

    3 of the 7 have replied and said that they would upload letters. However, according to the letter portal they have yet to upload the letters.

    The remaining 4 doctors have yet to reply my e-mails. These 4 doctors I have already e-mailed twice.

    Two questions:
    1) How long should I wait before following up on the three doctors who have agreed to write letters of recommendation for me?

    2) What is the best way to follow up on the remaining four doctors who have yet to reply my e-mails?

    Wait at least a couple weeks.

    You can leave a message with their secretaries, or "coincidentally" run into them in the hospital. Just don't be annoying.

    i asked in person and handed them a packet with everything they needed to be able to send my letters (of then they were written letters)...harder for people to say no and/or forget about your letter when you ask them important.
