Certificate Dean's Letter for IMG and LoR from my University Professors

Hey everyone,

1. Just had a quick question regarding the so called Dean Letter.
a) First of all, if anyone can explain briefly what the heck they want in a a Dean's Letter.
b)Secondly, as I know, the Dean office for IMG is the ECFMG. So, I have to ask the Dean of my university to send a letter directly to the ECFMG or is there something else I need to do?
c)Also, when and where I am going to be needing this Dean's Letter?
d)There was something new called Medical student evaluation form or something..any ideas about it?

2. I am trying to get LoR's from my University professors.
a)Will they be useful in applying for the residency positions?
b)Secondly, my professors are not quite familiar with the format of writing such letter. If anyone has any idea of how to write and what details to include.

I'll be very thankful if someone can clear these doubts.

Thanks a lot.

Hi , I am not an expert in USMLE advice but this is what i know about your question.

Dean's letter should state you were a student of your college from --- to --- It should state your college dean's impression about you( obviously few good words Briefly about your grades in college,and if or not have recieved your permanent degree certificate. if not approx time when you would be recieving it.
I got a copy of Dean's Letter while applying for step 1. it was sent to ECFMG by my college with form 186,344,345.


Your LOR's should have info about the work done by you in that particular department as an Intern. Procedures if have done any . and some NICE words about what your professors think of you Should be in college letter head with sign and seal of professor and their contact details.
Hope this helps..

Hi there...If you can please help me to clear some doubts I have...

Last year I got a Dean's letter for my step 1 application which was also sent directly to ECFMG (With my medical diploma and then my transcripts), so my questions are..

-Do I need to submit another dean's letter for my ERAS application?
-What about my transcripts, my photo, and my diploma.. Do i need to submit these again with my ERAS app or is ECFMG going to send them directly?

Thanks in advance
