Default Advice for LoR

I have recently been involved in clinical research at the department of emergency medicine at University of Massachusetts Memorial hospital. I am planning to get a LoR from the program director of the Research department (not the ED) i was wondering if this would be a decent letter considering this person would not be an MD but rather a PhD.

Please share your advice.

Thank you.
