Important Info: Medical Student Performance Record



Wednesday, October 22, 2014

There are several documents that make up a CaRMS residency application. The MSPR/Dean’s letter is a letter of standing from the dean or principal of your medical school.

Typically, this document:
-Reports on activities during medical school; and/or
-Comments on performance in clinical rotations; and/or
-Gives a recommendation for further medical training; and/or
-Reports on time spent in each specialty or department (hours or weeks).

All MSPRs/dean’s letters received at CaRMS will be treated as confidential and will not be shared with applicants.

Please note, not all documents are required for all programs or matches. Always consult the program descriptions for specific requirements. You should review these descriptions regularly to make sure you are aware of the latest requirements, as modifications are made throughout the year.
