Help Need more information about Dean Letter for IMGs

Hi everyone!

I am an IMG.
Can anyone please tell me that should the dean letter be printed on the medical school letterhead? what should be written on it? and do I have to get a dean letter or MSPE?
I have read that for IMGs; dean letter is accepted and for AMGs; MSPE is accepted..is that true?
Can I get a sample dean letter.

Please I need guidance in this regard.

thanks in advance..

The Dean Letter should be printed/typed on an official med school letterhead paper.

International Medical Schools usually do not implement the MSPE system and therefore the dean letter is the appropriate replacement.

The dean should write a summary about your performance in the school, like for example your ranking, date of graduation, any notable achievements, any notable misachievements, ...etc

The significance of Dean Letter for IMG applicants is much less than the significance of MSPE for AMGs (or IMGs who's schools do provide MSPEs).
