A few notes about the Deans letters:

  • Letters cannot be removed from our office, photographed or copied – This is an LCME and AAMC regulation, we absolutely have to follow the regulations.
  •  In the event that you are unable to come to the office to review your letter, you can call the office and your letter will be emailed to you in draft form. Please do not share or forward the encrypted draft you receive via email. 
  • Only the clerkship directors are authorized to alter the clerkship comments. Changes will ONLY be made if received from the Director of the clerkship. Student Affairs can make any grammatical changes to your letter on your behalf.
  • Using a red pen you can make changes and corrections to any wrong information or typographical errors. Sentence structure or comment order will not be changed. You cannot add items to your letter. The Dean's Letter is meant to be written by the Dean! Every accomplishment/paper/book, etc. is not needed in the letter. A complete list can be provided in your resume. Dr. LeDoux is the final approver for any changes.
  • If you do not come in to read your letter, it will be submitted on the deadline date without your approval.
