Please allow four to six weeks for your LOR to be uploaded or sent to you or the point of contact at your university or institution. If it takes longer, please notify your Success Coach who will follow up with the office to ensure your letter be uploaded or sent to the point of contact given.
We strongly encourage you schedule time with your physician during your rotation to introduce the idea of him/her writing you a LOR. Make sure you discuss distribution (ERAS, email, direct mail) and a date you can expect the physician to have it to you.
Where should the physician send my LoR?
We recommend your letter be submitted directly to ERAS through the Letter of Recommendation Portal if you plan to apply for residency soon. Once you create an account you will be able to generate a request form for the LOR you are requesting. The letter writer will then use the unique ID you provide to them to upload your LOR.
If you are not requesting the letter be uploaded for residency please provide a contact at your university (e.g. Dean, Associate Dean, Program Director, Residency Director, etc.) and we will have the letter sent to the administrative contact provided OR if discussed with your physician in advance, the letter can be given directly to you in a sealed envelope or via email.
