Question LoR Request Form

As per AAMC instructions:

The Letter Request Form is a PDF that includes the following:

LoR Author Details (as you entered them)
LoR Author Name
LoR Author Title/Department
Applicant Details
Name
ERAS Letter ID
AAMC ID
Specialty to which this letter will be assigned

Does the last option mean that if we use letter request form, we can't use that LOR for multiple specialities?

Hello everyone, just a quick question:
What if the Letter author is a program director, should I put that as his title? And there is limited space to write, so is it necessary to write the hsopital or university where he is associated?

I appreciate your answer!

There's a box you can tick right above the name of the letter writer which indicates he's a PD.
I think in the title you should limit it to prof/assistant/assoc. prof etc

Hmm. I didn't notice that, sorry. In that case I guess I would try to sneak it in if space permits like so -

Associate professor (Residency PD) / Internal Medicine

If you finalize an LoR Author that contains an error, you must return to Step 1 and create a new entry with the necessary corrections/changes. When you are satisfied with your new entry, you will need to provide your LoR Author with the Letter Request Form that corresponds with the new entry. You should also contact your Designated Dean's Office and make them aware of the new entry. All finalized LoR Authors will appear in Step 3.
