honestly it does not matter, many programs now prefer outpatient care over inpatient.

thanks for your responses, is it possible to receive multiple LORs from one rotation like from more than 1 doctor?

Correct Answer

Teaching hospital, it will give you a better experience for you, and the LORs are more relevant if they come from a university hospital, from an assistant professor or somebody with an academic appointment
