Certificate Can UK EM faculty write LOR or SLOR?

Hey Guys,

One of my referee's is a UK EM faculty, should I ask for a lor or a SLOR? I will hopefully get a SLOR from an observership in JULY in the US anyway, but as far as my English ref goes, is there any benefit to putting it in a SLOR format? I have a meeting to discuss it tomorrow so any advise tonight greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Although I don't know what you mean by SLOR, but as far as I can tell it's OK for anybody who has worked with you or supervised you to write an LoR.

If you are asking if he can write to you an LoR in a specialty other than emergency medicine, then the answer is Yes he can.

Thanks very much for the repy Sabio. The SLOR is a structured reference that is normally completed by an emergency physician in the US that places you in the context of other EM applicants, as opposed to a letter of recommendation (LOR). My question is whether or not the SLOR has any value if filled in outside the context of American Emergency Medicine. My referee is happy to do either one, I'm just not sure if I gain or lose by getting her to place it in the SLOR format? Sections of the SLOR clearly don't fit anywhere but in the States, but other sections could give valuable info. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for reply.
