So I am about to ask a doc I worked with a couple months ago to write me a letter of recommendation. He was a preceptor I worked with for an elective rotation who doesn't normally take students, and so I am not sure if he has any idea of how to write a good letter of recommendation. Personally, I am not even sure what is good to include in a letter of recommendation.

Do you guys have any ideas on how to guide him on how to write me a great letter?

Thanks! Happy Holidays Everyone!

Granted, this stuff says Touro University on it, but it gives some good general information.

On the left side of the page it says ERAS resources. It gives an ERAS coversheet and a LOR guide. I'm sure you don't go to Touro, but the general information is there. Obviously only use the information that would apply to you, an example of a sample letter is included. Some of the things may not apply, like if you are in a MD program you will not have an AOA number.

Just ask him " Can you write me a good LOR providing my strengths to the readers"? My private preceptor just told me "you write your own and I'll edit it from there"
