Smile How recent should the MSPE be?

I'm an IMG, planning to join the 2014 Match. I was thinking of getting an MSPE this month before I migrate out of my country.

So, I've been trying to find the answer to the above question on the official ECFMG website, but I couldn't find it. My goes sis that because it's a record of my past grades, there isn't a need for the date it was given to be current, unlike the LoRs.

But, I could be wrong! Can someone please point me to the part where they discuss how recent ERAS documents should be? Please?

MSPE is only uploaded once, after you finish your medical school, signed by your dean, and doesnt need to be updated or be recent.

hope that helps, take care

I am still going to acquire it from my med school. I know about uploading. What I'm asking is if I acquire it from my med school this year, but will be joining the Match (i.e. uploading it to ERAS) two years from now, will the date of when I acquired it be a problem?

No. That shouldn't be a problem.
