Default What does your MSPE look like ?

Hi everyone,

I have found some kind of guidance on how your medical school should write your MSPE. But let's face it, when your medical school just keeps track of your scores (and only your scores), what can they write on your MSPE so it at least looks okay compared to a US one ? What does your MSPE look like ? Thank you for your input.

Mine looks like the US one but MSPE is not really considered a lot for selecting IMGs for interviews (from what I have heard from previous applicants). Have you asked your college to give a detailed one? Few places do give you in the same format that AAMC requires based on your score reports and general performance in the rotations. It may not be very specific but mine has brief paragraphs listing what was required for each rotation and how I performed.

Than you again Saxo - you helped me with another post recently.

What you are saying makes sense. I am just confused with that part that should describe your unique characteristics and challenges that you encountered during medical school. Do you have a part like that on your MSPE ? And what about the summary where they should compare your overall performance relative to your peers ??

No problem man.
Yea in they unique characteristics they just put in details from my CV about med school awards. In the summary, it said I stood in the top ten percent of the class and kinda generic summary of how I performed through the school. It's obviously different from the US med schools but something seemed better than nothing.
