Default Need advice ASAP

Today my EM PD sent me his LOR, but instead being of being printed on Clinic's letterhead it is printed on EM association letterhead (which he is a president of)

Is it OK to ask him to reprint the letter useing Clinic's EM department letterhead?

disclaimer: i am a new application

I had requested an LOR from an attendign and he wrote it on his practice letterhead. honestly, if u can get it on a hospital letterhead, i say do it. its one of the first thing anyone looks at when they read ur letter: which hospital/university does the author work for. the problem is ur cutting it pretty close. u have less than 5 days to re-ask, upload and release. it may mean that u wont b able to apply on the 16th. which isn't a big deal of course, but just in case ur one of those ppl that wanna apply on the day of.

hope this helps

Thanks for your reply, I decided not to ask, cause in the letter it's clearly stated that his my PD and the same goes below his signature along with the university name, and he's a president of association.

guess it won't harm my application
