Insights and Tips on Requesting and Writing Letters of Reference

This week we are joined by a panel of experts: Dr. Lee Skrupky, Dr. Eliza Dy-Boarman, and Dr. Mate Soric to discuss all things related to letters of reference for residency programs. Notably, we focus on how reference writers should approach their letters and what candidates should expect. We also discuss a few articles recently published by members of our panel which are linked below.
