I have a bit of a dilemma and I'm not sure how to proceed: All through rotations I've been back and forth between anesthesia and EM I did an Anesthesia rotation in Aug this past year and had an amazing experience, and both attending docs I worked with offered me letters of rec. I had expressed my desire to pursue anesthesia as a residency and they wrote very specific letters geared toward the field. They were glowing letters and I was/am very appreciative. As the year has progressed, I've thought extremely hard on what I want to pursue as a career and I think I have decided to go with mu original love: EM. My questions... -is it proper to let the two physicians know I have decided on another field? -would the letters of rec be worthwhile to submit to ERAS anyway? (since EM prefers the SLOR I'm thinking not) -if they offer... do I take them up on generalizing the letter? I just want them to know how grateful I am for their time and effort. Thanks in advance!
