    LORs - Help !

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering whether the LORs you get during clinical rotations are the only ones which count towards your residency application ? I am almost done with college coursework (in my home country) but can still manage LORs from professors of medicine, oral surgery, maybe even general surgery and most certainly from professors of all dental specialites. I'm told what you do in a domiciled school counts alot...so was just wondering...any help appreciated ! Thanks !

    residency PDs don't care about what happened in basics...they want letters from clinical attendings and other PDs...you will not need letters from professors or residents...or from schools other than medical school.

    you haven't even started...you have a ways before this becomes important enough to worry about...your job as a 1st year student is to learn the basic scince material you will be given as well as you can....the rest will come along in time...

    i would however recommend getting a copy of 1st aid before 1st term ...not to study from, because much of it will not relevant to the depth of studying you are doing for basics, but to annotate as you go through basics...there will be mention during the courses of this will be important for step i and those are things to jot down in 1st aid...at the end of two years, you will have a nice single source for step I review. Best piece of advice i got about med school...

    Thank you for that. I am in no rush actually, just that i'll be packing away from here soon and wanted to get whatever maybe required in future so that there aren't any problems. Things here work at snails pace, I'm sure you know...Just that "domiciled" place's work got me wondering whether I needed proof to show it wasn't all worthless....

    And thanks for the first aid tip. I have sort of started going through a bit of term 1 study material !
