It can refer to LORs from US Physicians that supervised you during clinical rotations.

We dont recommend IMGs/FMGs or USMGs to waive their right to see the LORs for the simple fact that not LORs are positive. You want to make sure that the LORs obtained form US Physicians and that you use to apply for residency explain how well you did during your rotations and how well prepared you are for residency.

If you "waive" your right to see the LOR you take the chance of a negative LOR being submitted to the residency programs you apply to.
