Default Its a must!!!

MSPE is required for everyone and needed to be upload by i think october. but it is a MUST without that your application is considered to be incomplete. and some program directors are very specific about it, my husband's MSPE was rejected by 1 of the program directors and he got an e mail saying that there is something wrong with it. he lost an interview just b/c of the MSPE.
so its a very important piece of paper.

Hi Dr. Lacune,

If you apply through MyERAS, one of the components is providing an MSPE. It is very important that you ask your school to provide one as it is required.

ECFMG has information about the MSPE here:

Yes, you may have them send it by email. Make sure you look at the link I provided for details.

Once you have the form, you can upload it to ECFMG's OASIS and they will help you get it to MyERAS.
