Certificate Three LoRs from the same hospital

Hey guys,

Just a little confusion, we mostly need three us LoRs,
now if one is doing observership in hospital in usa,, can one get LoRs from three different docs in same hospital.
If not how can you gather three LoRs in short period of 3 months when you can likely do observership only in one hospital for three months..

please guide

Default Go to different departments/hospitals

You can get three LoRs from the same hospital if you do three different rotations in three different departments.

Theoretically speaking you can also get three LoRs from the same department but that wouldn't be as powerful as three different LoRs from different departments.

That's why, if you plan on doing three months observership then it's best to plan it in three different places.

Hi Sabio,
How about 3 LoRs from 3 different attendings, all in Pediatric area but in 3 different subspecialties from the same Hospital? Will they be useful or useless because all are from the same Pediatric area from the same Hospital?
