Any suggestions for writing a recommendation?

I am a high school counselor in the Midwest. I guide students through the college application process and I work in a big, public school. I am also new this year and starting this year, I will write recommendations for my students. One of my students has told me that he has a strong interest in medicine and we talked about the possibility of incorporating this interest of his into my recommendation for him. As I work in a very big school and this is my first year, I unfortunately haven't had the chance to really get to know many of my kids, and he is one of them. So my question is, besides what I already know about this student and the parts that I plan to write about, do you have any suggestions for what I could possibly say in order to get the message across that he has the qualities to become a possible future physician? Any key phrases or key words or even sentences that show this would be great. This is my first time using cc and I thank you all for you input.
