  Hi Doctors,

Recently I got accepted in family Medicine residency program , and I am currently on J-1 Research Visa and still uploading the documents on the ECFMG J-1 sponsorship , But I still figuring out how to get approval on the research mentor letter and the Director support letter.
every time I upload these letters the ECFMG reject them because they don't explain clearly the how my research scholar is related to the clinical activity on the purposed clinical program.

The letter needs to demonstrate that the research is connected to learning objectives/expectations of the residency program.

For example if the research focuses on finding new method of knee replacement that is going reduce recovery time, then the letter need show HOW this research is going to translate into skills needed to be an effective orthopedic surgery resident. May be NOT the best example, but I hope it helps.

Look at the your research objective and match them learning objectives/job description of residency
