I shadow at a large hospital group, and almost all of my interaction is with residents. I am particularly close with one resident in the Orthopedics department, he is a second-year resident. Is he a viable LOR writer choice?

if you have a strong relationship with the resident and he/she actually knows you well, then i see no reason why not

Is this for DO schools that require one?

If not, then a letter from any physician (resident or attending) won't help you much

for an MD program. I transferred from a small school to a huge school, from which i graduated. I'm not in touch with old profs from my small school, and i have two profs who would give good LORs from my granting institution. However, one is unreliable, so having this resident might be super helpful. Thoughts?
