Default Cleveland clinic Florida LOR

Hi,
I have got an observership for 1 month in Cleveland Clinic Florida in the dept. of Cardiology. In the confirmation letter they have stated that, "We do not provide recommendation letters. Being an observer at Cleveland Clinic does not allow for adequate assessment of clinical and surgical skill sets. As such staff physicians are unable to provide letters of recommendation". As an IMG, LORs are the sole reason of doing observerships! If anyone has observed in Cleveland Clinic Florida, can you tell me if it's possible to get at least 1 or 2 LORs? Thanks in advance for your help!

If they do not provide LoR's, this is going to be a bit useless. You can still put it down in your experiences though. If you have nothing else that you can do then go for this and ask your supervisor directly for an LoR. If they are nice enough, they may write you one.

Hey guys.
is it really difficult to be accepted at the CC observership?
If not usmle scores what do they use as base for acceptance?
Will I have more chances if coming from a Latin American Medical School?

Would also want to know if someone recieved LOR when attending here.
