Smile LoRs from a father-in-law!

Hello my friends, I have a question here.
How do I get a LOR in USA????
My father in law is the medical director of an Emergency Departament , can he give me a LOR if I do a couple of rotations with him?????. He can also get me some rotations with his friends in the hospital, do this count as LOR??????
The hospital is not a teaching hospital and you cannot do residency there.
Is still this a good way to get LORs??????

Thumbs Up Yes, why not

Any rotation in any department with any attending physician in USA is counted as USCE.
Any USCE rotation can eventually lead to a letter of recommendation being written for you.

Indeed, those LoRs from your father-in-law and from the other doctors would work.

The fact that it's not a teaching hospital and has no residency in it does not preclude the rotation as being a USCE.
