Department chair is the Head of Dept. or Univ. Prof. of that specialty from your Med School! That's different that MSPE which is uploaded and released differently through OASIS.
Chair letter is a LOR but from that specific person.

I have 2 letters from 2 professors in my home country but only showing their emails and phone numbers
But not official from my faculty
would it be strong enough as some may consider it fake?
