Question about letters of recommendation

    So I'm a 4th year right now and in the process of getting letters of recommendation. What is the difference between an SLOR and a regular LOR? In fact, what is an SLOR period? How many of each do most programs require for applications? If I ask a faculty member who is not a director of anything, would I be getting a regular LOR or an SLOR?

    Thanks, clearly I am very confused. Is the SLOR something specific to EM or do other specialities also have such a thing?

      Thanks for the reply!

      How many SLORs do I need and how many regular LORs do I need? Do only clerkship directors/residency program directors write these? If I get a letter from an EM attending that is NOT a program director, whcih format should I use?
