I wanted to discuss the significance of a letter of recommendation (LOR) for family medicine residency applications. It seems like the LOR plays a crucial role in a student's chances of getting admitted. Can someone shed some light on what exactly admission committees look for in a family medicine LOR? Are there any specific qualities or experiences they prioritize?
Furthermore, should the LOR come from a particular source, like a family medicine physician, or can it be from other healthcare professionals? And what are some tips for requesting a strong LOR for family medicine?
