Certificate They could not print the dean letter

I received this e-mail today from a program saying that they could not print my dean's letter:
But it is only one sentence that says “This document is provided in lieu of the applicant’s MSPE. Please contact the applicant with any questions you may have.”

I am an IMG who have graduated for more than 10yrs and my medical school has not provided ECFMG with a MSPE, however my credentials, diploma etc were verified by them and everything was ok. I am ECFMG certified.

I also called MYERAS and they told me that it was there available at the postoffice.

Any inputs? Please

In general, applicants usually send the MSPE themselves to ERAS, because most foreign medical schools highly hesitate to send this document. When the PD read this phrase in your application "This document is provided in lieu of the applicant’s MSPE" , this means ERAS definitely haven't received the MSPE and has provided the PDs with a blank paper to make your application look complete.
If you have it or can get one soon, then do that and mail it to that program.

Thank you for your reply. I don't have one. I have graduated a long time ago and I am afraid it will take a longer time to get one specially because in my country it is not a common thing to give to students. So far I have got plenty of interviews and I am afraid this will jeopardize the process.
I will try to work on that.

Thanks

MSPE has almost no effect on you as an IMG. Many people even get prematch without it. Keep in faith!
