Question Teaching attending versus clinical prof?

One of the doctors I rotated with is a "teaching attending" in a hospital. She teaches residents/fellows in the medical service/wards. Is that the same as the position, "clinical professor"? I asked her and she told me she does not know. I'm asking because I will put the title for the LOR in MyERAS. Thank you!

will she write the lor on the teaching hospital letter head ?? if yes then her name must be on the faculty list of that hospital

best would be to google her name with the teaching hospitals name and see if she is listed on the hospital faculty and what her position is .

hope that helps
