Furman faculty members help ensure our students are competitive applicants for graduate school in medical or health professions through recommendation letters. With your experience working alongside students in and out of the classroom, your evaluation can inform a school about the attributes, personal strengths and potential of a specific candidate.  

Recommendation letter Components

A student seeking your recommendation will provide you with two forms to complete:

Some health professional schools may also have additional components or guidelines. If you are required to complete an additional form, your student will provide you with the information.

steps to completing your recommendation

  • Do not address a letter to a specific professional school unless advised by your student.
  • In your recommendation, be sure to share detailed information about how you have worked one-on-one with the student. Provide details about advising, interactions in and outside of the classroom, and any notable work accomplished by the student.
  • Focus your recommendation on specific situations and relevant examples. Specific examples of a student's work hold more weight than generic statements.

submit your recommendation

Once you have completed the required forms, submit your recommendation letter and other forms to our office. Submit your information to Dr. John Banisaukas.
