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.
