OHSU does not require letters from specific sources, however, our preference is for letters of reference to be submitted from each of the following:
- a physician assistant (PA) or physician (MD or DO)
- a current or former work supervisor
- an academic source such as an academic advisor, instructor, professor
The above sources are only our preference for letter writers. Applicants should select references based on many factors including those who know you best. The letters should come from professional sources, not family members or friends.
Please refer to the CASPA application directions and CASPA FAQs for further information regarding reference letters:
