Prepare Your Application Materials
Gather Your Applicant Information
Some of your personal information from your CASPR registration is prepopulated into your application. Other information that is required to complete your application includes:
- Academic History
- Professional Accomplishments
- Board Scores (uploaded by AACPM directly)
Compose a Personal Statement
A Personal Statement and CV must be included in each application you submit. You should start working on those documents as soon as possible and upload them to the NMS Match System in PDF format when they are complete.
Reach Out To Your Reference Letter Writers
Each application must have at least 3 letters of reference. Requests for individual reference letters are made using the NMS Match System, and your references will upload their letters directly to NMS Match System.
Prepare any Supplemental Material
Check with each program as soon as possible regarding its application requirements. If a program requires additional information included as part of its application, you can prepare this information and upload it to the system as a Supplemental Material PDF document.
Your college will need to provide an official transcript, GPA, class rank, Clinicals, and Dean's letter (if applicable) on your behalf. This material will be included in each application you submit to programs.
Your CASPR Applicant Fee provides you with 10 credits to send applications to programs. Each credit allows you to send one application to one program, regardless of the number of tracks offered by that program. If a program offers more than one track, you can specify the tracks you are interested in when you submit your application.
If you want to send applications to more than 10 programs, you will have to pay an additional fee of $15 USD per application.
If you are interested in a program in MPII that you previously applied to, you do not need to submit a new application to the program. The program will have access to your previously submitted application at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on March 10, 2023. However, you should contact the program directly to tell them you are interested in being reconsidered for a position.
You cannot submit applications until AACPM uploads into CASPR a passing APMLE Part I result for you. However, you can submit your applications before your letters of reference or college material are received.
It is your responsibility to monitor the status of any outstanding college material and reference letters and ensure they are submitted in the NMS Match System by the program's deadline.
