SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have an issue with LORs that I'd like to run by the more experienced. I rotated in my Neurology elective early, as I've known for a long time I wanted to go into a neuroscience-based specialty. The attendings I worked with, however, both quit shortly after I rotated (not because of me!) due to the high pressure of the job at my institution. Therefore, we have not had neurology coverage for the past 2 years. My mentor is an interventional neurologist at a private hospital associated with our medical school. So basically, I am only able to obtain ONE letter from a Neurologist. My other letters include 1-2 letters from IM attendings I worked very closely with in an inpatient and outpatient setting and 1 letter from the director of internal medicine/neurobiology research at a strong midwest university hospital system. I have tried multiple times to contact my previous neurology attendings to no avail... Am I going to be discounted during interview selection because I have only 1 neurology letter? All I want to do is be a brain doctor!!
