Question Two LoRs from same rotation?

is it ok to use two LORs from one rotation? What i mean is I did a rotation in hematology and I got 2 LORs from 2 different doctors in the same department and for the same rotation. Is it ok to use both of these together?

Yes. You can.

But if course it's not good. It would be much better if you have different LoRs from different rotations to show off your various experiences and prove that people in different environments have liked you.

Probably helps for that program only but if you have different LoRs then use them for the other programs.
