I have a few 'general' LOR's that I planned on submitting to transitional programs ("I recommend Mr. X Y for your program...")

Would it be alright to submit these to radiology programs or should I ask them to rewrite the intro to say "I recommend Mr. X Y for a radiology residency at your institution..."???

This has been discussed numerous times before.

The TY programs know that you are interviewing for advanced positions. Therefore, you CAN have two versions - 1 specific, 1 general, two separate letters - both specific or one letter (which states you are applying for Rads).

I'd choose the latter or the first, if you feel the need to have two but recommend that your letter to Rads programs be more specific, as this is generally considered a stronger letter (which should highlights the skills you have that will make you a great radiologist rather than some general comments that everyone gets).
