Certificate One Letter Writer and Two LoRs!

Can one letter writer submit two letters for one applicant e.g. one IM letter and an FM letter for one applicant?

Smile Yes, you can but be careful

Yes, you can do that.

The same letter write can write two letters for you. One for IM and another for FM.

In fact, a surgeon can recommend you for IM in his letter! Yes, there are no restrictions for that matter.

However, be careful, DO NOT submit these two letters to the same program because PDs will be laughing at you and at the letter writer.
