Just wondering what are some of the things that you did during medical school to help you get into an EM residency (ie. EM research, EM electives etc..)? What would you recommend to others? Thanks.
You could get a LOR from this but I wouldn't recommend it. One of the things the LOR is supposed to address are your clinical skills and knowledge base and to be frank, at this point you won't have any.Can I get a LOR for something that isn't a rotation? Will it be helpful get an LOR for what I am doing?
That's late? I don't think I know anyone who decided earlier than that. I would describe late as May of 4th year.Originally posted by cg1155
Here's what I did:
Decided definitively on EM late (may of 3rd year)
cg, you're right. My mistake. You're minimum is 3 LOR's, but you may submit an additional LOR at many programs.Originally posted by cg1155
Geek, are there any programs that limit you to 3? I know most require 3, but what I heard was that if you had 4 then send them. All of the programs I applied to required three, got four, and usually brought all 4 up in the interview.
