So now that we're past Midyear and it's time to get everything together. Something that came up for a friend/coworker is that a program specified that one letter/reference should be from a supervisor. One person she was hoping to use a reference from is a pharmacist that we work with, and also did a rotation with. This person has worked there for about a year and a half and has worked under the preceptor quite a bit. While this person is not a supervisor per se, technically a pharmacist that we work with supervises us as interns. Is that sufficient as far as meeting the "supervisor" definition? Is it appropriate to contact a program director and ask if that would be ok? and Z, I did not ask my DOP, I've got an Inpatient Supervisor lined up for mine.
