Surgeon Recommendation Letter

Want to use this letter?

Surgeons may be highly in-demand professionals, but the surgical field is still one of the most competitive in the world. A surgeon recommendation letter from a former teacher or employer who can vouch for your skills as a surgeon is essential to creating a competitive application. A letter of recommendation shows that another professional with years of experience believes that you would be an asset to their field.

Felicity Weeks,

I am writing as the attending surgeon for Michael Earp’s graduating class to recommend him for the position of surgeon at your hospital. During his time under my instruction, I have been impressed with Michael’s willingness to learn and dedication to improving his technique. During surgical school, he took several optional courses and seminars solely to improve his repertoire of knowledge.

Michael graduated in the top two percent of his class at Walton Medical School and was president of our local honor society chapter. Throughout his residency, Michael demonstrated great technical skill as well as strong interpersonal skills with his patients and fellow students. I have no doubt that Michael will fit in well with the rest of your team.

In any surgical environment, reliability and maturity are key. Michael has always demonstrated sound priorities, punctuality and good judgment in his academic life as well as his professional performance. I believe strongly that he would bring these same skills and traits to your hospital as a full-time surgeon.
