MSPR (Dean's Letter)
The Medical School Performance Record (MSPR;
aka “Dean’s Letter) is like an elaborate transcript of your
performance throughout the four years of medical school. It is
not a letter of recommendation but a more objective reporting of
your academic history, the evaluations you have received, and
the faculty-sponsored activities in which you have participated.
Clinical evaluations and notations from
Osler Fellows are included in the appropriate sections
exactly as they are received by our office. The Dean’s
Office has NO authority to “edit” evaluation content for the
MSPR, so be sure to check your evaluations online regularly. If
you are dissatisfied with any aspect of an evaluation that you
have received, please be sure to follow the correct procedures (see
Grades & Evaluation as well as other pages in the UGME
web's Academic Policies - Evaluation & Promotion section) for evaluation review within the
While BOM is pass/fail, comparative
performance graphs for Surgery, Internal Medicine and Family
Medicine are included for ICM, and comparative performance
graphs for each Core Clerkship discipline are also included.
These graphs show your performance relative to the rest of the
class for that discipline.
During early fall, you will have a chance to
review your MSPR so that you are aware of its general content
