- Your letter should have your AAMC number somewhere; right after your name is a good spot.
- Make sure there is emphasis on what rotation you did and how long you conducted the rotation.
- Also make sure your attending doctor writes a theme of “teamwork” in your letter body, because teamwork is highly important to residency programs. You will be working as a team in residency so that should be written somewhere in the letter.
