Question LOR ! Need help please !!

Hi all ! I have a question ..I have to submit 2 LORs along with CV and my personal statement to complete my application for an observership. Now I am a graduate so can I submit the LORs from my current employer who is a practicing physician and another one from my previous employer who also is a practicing physician. will this be good enough ?
I can also get a LOR from the dean & the head of medicine department of my medical school.. but this will take time and I have already got a mail from the coordinator on the 16th asking me to submit the above. I have the 2 LORs ready from my current and previous employer & I can also get the 2 more from my medical school where I graduated from in 2011 but they arent ready yet.
I am confused. which will hold more value and help me get the observership am applying for? Please advise anyone ! need help ! thanks!!

I dont want to delay the application process but I dont want to make a mistake by not sending the LORs from my medical school if they hold more value. Also, I graduated in 2011 so the ones from my medical school will be based on how much these guys knew me then..nonetheless I am in touch with them so they can write a good LOR but that'll take quite some time. Please advise me.

best thing is to ask program co-ordinator, whether u gotta submit US LoRs or the LoRs from your country.. If its from your country i think medical school LoRs wud b the best with college letter head.. Ask them if it is ok tf you submit application few days late.. but if u hav no choice than try with the LoRs you have..
