Class of 2019: MSPE Tips and Updates


The Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPE) are currently being compiled. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Noteworthy Characteristics: These are written by you, the students, and should be three salient characteristics, two-three sentences each. Pick something meaningful! If you need ideas, see your lead advisor for theme suggestions. Don’t wait—get any questions to your lead advisor soon!
  2. The MSPE will include only the core third-year clerkships. Your summative comments will be pulled in. The comments can be edited for grammar and spelling only, and cannot be adjusted for content. If you are not happy with wording in the summative comments, this can be changed only by the clerkship directors. Comments from electives should be pulled in via letters of recommendation.
  3. The transcripts will be pulled on September 10. Please make sure your transcript is up to date before then!
