Dear Professor ○○,

It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation in support of Dr. Yoshihisa Sugimoto as a candidate for ○○ Hospital visit. I have well known Dr. Sugimoto both personally and professionally since 20○○, when he was an orthopaedic surgery resident at the ○○ University Medical School. After finishing the residency, he went through training in spinal deformity surgery, endoscopic surgery and spinal tumor surgery at ○○ University Hospital from 20○○ to 20○○. Then, he worked in the ○○ Hospital from 20○○ to 20○○, where he had performed over 150 cases of spinal trauma surgery during those two years. He has been working at our Department of Orthopaedic Surgery since 20○○.

Dr. Sugimoto is a highly motivated, well-rounded orthopaedic surgeon, and his presence has certainly brought a positive impact on our department. I have no doubt that Dr.Sugimoto is an excellent candidate for your hospital visit, which will be a profound and meaningful experience for him to advance his career in spine surgery.

Sincerely yours,

○○, MD, PhD

Professor and Chairman of Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Science of Functional ○○
Graduate School of Medicine, ○○○
○○ University

M.D.  : Medical Doctorの略
PhD  : Philosophy Doctor(博士号)

アドバイス
推薦状については,教授に書いてもらっても良いのですが,
どこの大学でも教授はとてもお忙しいですから,
自分で自分の推薦状を書いて教授の元に持参して,
それを教授に修正してもらう.
というのが良いかもしれません.
