The Process Past Grads MSPE Request Form Contacts
The MSPE (or Dean's Letter) is trending to become the #1 evaluation tool for Program Directors when deciding on whether to grant an interview and also when creating their Rank Order List (ROL) for residency spots.
At WVSOM MSPEs are prepared for all senior students and past graduates by the Office of the Academic Dean. The MSPE is a comprehensive look at a student's life (academically and professionally) while enrolled at WVSOM ending at the conclusion of their third year.
Past Graduates seeking new residencies or fellowships has not been update since the end of your Match cycle year you must request a New MSPE. (please see "The Process" below)
The MSPE is a letter of evaluation, NOT a letter of recommendation. That is, it is intended to be a comprehensive summary of the student’s academic record through the first three years of medical school. The MSPE consists of the student’s progress until the MSPE is submitted on or around October 1st, as dictated by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP)
A MSPE is not specialty specific; sections included in the WVSOM MSPE: (this only applies to MSPEs for the class of 2017 on)
The Office of the Academic Dean will send out a notice that the process of creating MSPEs has begun (this will coincide with the rising senior class being granted full access to all ERAS functions).
Students and Past Graduates will submit to the Office of the Academic Dean Administrative Assistant a copy of their ERAS CV (This is the printout of your ERAS application) and a completed MSPE Request Form.
The deadline for turning in your MSPE request will be the last Friday of July. MSPE requests turned in after this date can not be guaranteed to ready by the October 1st release date.
MSPEs are completed in the order in which the request is received. MSPEs will be sent to students, every Friday during the process, for a five-day review period. Students that submit changes in one email to the Office of the Academic Dean within this five-day review period. Failure to respond will result in the student's MSPE being uploaded or sent as is.
The MSPE will be uploaded to ERAS the last week in September by the GME Program Coordinator, not before.
If you have completed the Match cycle in the last match cycle you will need to complete a MSPE request.
