HPAC Committee Letter of Recommendation Request

A committee letter is a letter authored by HPAC and offers evaluation and advocacy on your behalf by highlighting your background and accomplishments, contextualizing challenges, and outlining your overall preparation and motivation for pursuing a career in medicine. A committee letter is often sent with additional letters of recommendation that you solicit from your faculty and others in support of your candidacy. You may request external recommenders to participate in your committee letter. It is important to view the individual schools you intend to apply for and ensure their preference for letters of recommendations.
