Hi guys, I am an IMG who has already done one month of clinical electives from harvard. Harvard university has sent an evaluation report based on my performance to my medical school. My question is- are these evaluation forms equivalent to the LORs? Can they be used in place of LORs for uploading them to the ERAS while applying or residency? I read a similar thread on this matter here- Evaulation Forms and no Letters of Recommendation from Brown University
. Here some experienced members have written that objective evaluation reports are better than the LORs and carry more weightage while others say that they cannot be used as a replacement for LORs. Also i would like to know that are these evaluation reports sent directly to ecfmg? And where can i use them? In my application or ERAS? Though i would be still getting a LOR from my mentor i just wanted to know your opinion on these evaluation forms. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
