Do not be passive by waiving your rights to see your MSPE: Most medical school Deans are open to hearing your points of view on how your MSPE should explain certain aspects of your history. For example it is not uncommon for a US medical school to as the medical student to draft their own Noteworthy Characteristics, and to give the medical student access to proofread their MSPE and suggest corrections. If your personal or academic history is complicated (takes longer than 30 seconds to explain in a residency interview), then we strongly recommend that you not waive your right to see and comment and even help your school write your MSPE.
Obtain permission from your medical school’s Dean: Ensure that your Dean gives you permission to assist him/her with 1 or all 3 of the following MSPE components:
- Noteworthy Characteristics
- Academic History, Academic Progress and Summary
- Medical School Information
Select your MSPE Drafting Service: Once confirmed, you may then enroll online by individually selecting the corresponding MSPE Drafting Service options on this page. For each component, you will respond to a set of questions, then you’ll meet with Dr. Mizani via video conference to review your responses and begin compiling the portion of MSPE you paid for.
The end result of enrolling in all 3 of the above services is an easy to read, 6-8 page document which is as closely aligned with the 2017 AAMC MSPE recommendations.
Total time spent on drafting all 3 MSPE sections: 8-20 hours.
