So, I need to list three people to write me LORs on the NIH IRTA application. The site says that:

You should select references who are able to explain why you would be a good addition to a research group. Anyone who could comment on your skills in the laboratory, creativity, problem solving abilities, motivation, ability to handle complex scientific literature and concepts, etc. would be a good choice. Recommendations from individuals with a science research background are likely to carry more weight than recommendations from those with less understanding of biomedical research.
So, I'm planning on listing my PI and a science professor who I've been very involved with. I don't know who my third should be...

Would a physician I've shadowed a lot be a bad idea?

Who did you guys list?
