Recommendation Letter Examples

Postby MiaBaby » Tue Aug 02, 2005 5:23 pm

One of my references is from the UK, and has never written a recommendation for US med school before. She was wondering if I had an example of a good letter for her to see. I can find lots of guidlines and stuff, but I can't seem to find any good example letters. Does anyone know where I might find such a thing?

the writer should clearly describe his/her relationship with you, what interactions you had, etc.

then they should comment on several of your strengths that would make you an excellent physician. for example: desire to be a doc, compassion, leadership capabilities, academic skills, work ethic, etc.

it should be about a page long.

the more personalized it is the better.

Thanks, that's helpful. But actually I'm not having any trouble describing the letter, I just wanted to show her an example. You know, of the "John Doe" variety...

It is easy to find examples of other types of reference letters online, but for some reason it is difficult to find medical school recommendations. Anyone who knows of a link to some generic example letters, please let me know!

Try this..It is not exactly a whole letter but has many parts and good recomendations too.
