    Hi all!!

    If there is anybody out there that happens to know what qualities Emergency Medicine programs are looking for when they read an applicant's faculty recommendations from various courses taken in medical school, I could use some advice. I have heard that Medicine, Surgery, and of course EM are the 3 courses that one should get recommendations from if they did fairly well in them. So in addition to an honest assessment, on what qualities do the residencies want to have the faculty members comment? I'm just wondering what I should tell faculty members when they ask if there's anything specific I want included in the letter. Thanks for your help.

    Hi

    Sorry, I can't give exact references but I know there are some good articles covering EM selection etc. A lit search might give you some good info. Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    SAEM has a standard LOR form link on their web site. www.SAEM.org It might give you a few clues.
