Importance of the MSPE as an IMG ??
Hi, there aren't any recent threads on this topic, so I just want to get some answers from anyone reading this, if possible.
I am at an Australian medical school and will be an IMG applying into the match.
Obviously a dean's letter / MSPE would need to be submitted with the match application regardless, but does anyone have any knowledge as far as the actual significance or importance of the MSPE as an international applicant?
Do competitive residency programs still rely heavily on it, or would they mostly look at good USMLE scores, research, etc.?
Any information would very helpful!
