Hello all. I've been shadowing a family practice DO at my local hospital for the past several months, but he's moving across the country next month.. I'm not applying until next year and was really counting on him for a LOR. He mentioned last month that he would write me one before he left; however, this was before I decided to wait until next year to apply. Would it be too much to ask of him to write me one and keep it in a safe place for when I apply next year? Or should I find another DO to shadow for the coming year? I'm working full time as a scribe in an ER during this coming year and there is a DO there; however, I wasn't sure if obtaining one from someone I work with would look as good as one from someone I set aside time to shadow and learn about the DO philosophy and methods from. Thanks.
