Postgraduate Documents Request Form

Graduates of Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine may request the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE/Dean’s Letter) and/or a Letter of Explanation by completing the request form below. Please allow 2 – 3 weeks turnaround time for requests to be processed. If you have a deadline prior to the 3 week turnaround time, please provide and we will do our best to meet your deadline, but it is not guaranteed.

The Letter of Explanation is needed only if you have taken more than four (4) years to complete your M.D., for any reason, and only if your state medical licensing board, residency program, hospital or other official institution asks for this document.

We will send official copies of your documents directly to programs, hospitals, state medical licensing boards, or other official institutions.  If you request copies for yourself, the documents will be unofficial — no letterhead, no signatures, and an embedded watermark “Student Copy”.

If you’re using EFDO Midus for MSPE request, please give the EFDO system the following information:
