Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
The MSPE is a summary letter of evaluation intended to provide residency program directors with an honest and objective summary of a student's experiences, attributes, and academic performance. This document includes noteworthy characteristics, academic history, grades on clinical clerkships as well as comments from preceptors, and class rank. The final version of each students' MSPE will be uploaded by the school into the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
Careers in Medicine
Careers in Medicine is a career planning program that helps students explore career options, choose a specialty, and select and apply to residency programs.
The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), or The Match®, is a private, non-profit organization established in 1952 at the request of medical students to provide an orderly and fair mechanism for matching the preferences of applicants for U.S. residency positions with the preferences of residency program directors.
