    Is it possible to submit two specialty specific letters from the same writer on your ERAS application? surely, they could write a vauge letter, useable for anything, but say you actually want 2 specific ones from the same person. Will ERAS get confused and send the wrong one to the wrong program? How can you make sure the right one is being sent?

    There's a way to do this, and it's not ERAS who will get confused.

    Okay, so let's say John Smith, MD is writing you a letter for both Internal Medicine and for General Surgery.

    On ERAS, you make one listing which says, Med-John Smith, MD, and another which says Surg-John Smith, MD, or some variation on that.

    Those titles are just for you to know which letter it which, but more importantly, for the ERAS person at your school to know how to connect the actual letter with the ERAS name. (That's the person you need to make sure ISN'T confused about what you're doing). Just talk to him or her, tell them what to expect and what the abbreviations mean, and you should be okay.

    Does that make sense?
