vslogo Noteworthy Characteristics

Noteworthy Characteristics (previously called Unique Characteristics) • This section of the MSPE will include information intended to help a residency program selection committee review applicants holistically to achieve a residency class that brings a diverse set of background experiences, characteristics and perspectives. • Please provide a maximum of three characteristics highlighting your most salient noteworthy characteristics. • This section should be presented as a bulleted list. Each characteristic should be described in 2 sentences or less. Information about any significant challenges or hardships encountered by the student during medical school may be included. • Lengthy biographical descriptions are not recommended due to the time required for review and because these details can be found in other sections of the applicant’s portfolio (e.g., ERAS application, personal statement, letters of recommendation, interviews). •


**The Noteworthy Characteristics will be due April 1, 2017. Please submit to Kat Chiacchia via email: kac6n@virginia.edu.

If you need assistance, contact Kat in Student Affairs (434) 924-2133 or kac6n@virginia.edu.
