So I was gonna add the physician (MD) that was shadowing for the past 2 years as an evaluator, but when I went to select the "Relationship to you:*" drop box, there isn't a practicing physician option. The only options are:
  • Health Professions Advisor
  • Academic Advisor
  • Graudate Advisor
  • Immediate Work/Volunteer Supervisor
  • Business Associate
  • Current or Former Professor
  • Lab Supervisor
  • Chair-Graduate Department
  • Practicing Veterinarian
  • Practicing Dentist
  • JAMP Faculty Director (JFD)
  • Research PI
  • Other
As far as I can tell, I don't think any of these are really good matches. And it's weird since practicing vet. and practicing dentist are options, but not practicing physician or the like. What option should I select so that the selection committee knows that I shadowed under a doctor for 2 years and he's the one writing the letter?

When you select "other" does it give you an option to type in a title for the person?
