Is it required to have an LOR from an English professor?

Is there any medical school that asks specifically for a LOR from an English professor, say writing? I see that writing-intensive classes are highly valued by adcoms, so just curious about this.

No school that I know requires a letter from English professor and/or instructor from writing course

Most medical schools require a year of english and/or a writing course
Most medical school require 1 of your LORs from a non-science professor

A letter from your English professor would fill these requirements.

BTW, for those who take an intensive writing class that is not an English course, having a letter from this professor would be helpful to explain the writing portion of the course.
