Standardized Letter of Recommendation (SLOR)

The SLOR was devised and adopted by the members of the Council of Orthopaedic Residency Directors (CORD) which represents 172 orthopaedic residency and fellowship programs. The SLOR is intended to provide residency programs a more concise perspective on a candidate than what is traditionally outlined in a letter. Standardized questions and options for answers make comparisons easy and much more accurate. Letter writers need to complete this one form, eliminating the need for a separate narrative letter of recommendation.
