My Application Overview
Once you have signed into your account, you can begin completing your
application. There are nine required pieces:
Stage I - Deadline 9-5-2018
Basic Application Part I
NBPME Score Release
Payment of Fees
Stage II - Deadline 10-25-2018
Basic Application Part II
Letters of Recommendation (LORs) (opt)
Supporting Documents (opt)
Click on the “My Application” tab to begin. Links to the different pieces of the
application are listed on this page.
The reason why the LORs and Supporting documents is listed as optional is
because applicants can either upload them to their CASPRweb account, or mail the
materials directly to the programs. Please see "Supplemental materials"
below for more information.
Each section of the application has a separate help button ().
If you have questions, please check here first.
Another place to check would be this CASPRweb Guide, found on the
"Information" tab. If you still have questions, please contact the CASPR office
directly. Contact information is listed on the "Information" tab.
The "My Application" tab will only be available during the first phase of the
cycle. After the Initial Designation period ends on October 25th, you will not be
able to make changes to your application. Contact information can be kept
current via the "Edit Profile" tab, which will be available for the remainder of
the cycle. No other changes can be made to the application once it is delivered
to the programs.
If you have not completed your application or designated programs by October
the "My Application" tab will continue to be available once the
website reopens November 12th until both your
application is completed and you have designated a program or the
December 3rd deadline has passed.
Passage of APMLE Required
For the the 2019 CASPR cycle passage of APMLE Parts I and II Written is required in order to continue participating in CASPR.
Please see NBPME's announcement regarding the Part II Clinical Exam, CSPE on
APMLE's website: http://www.apmle.com/.
You must release your scores to CASPR, as we need official scores from
NBPME in order to determine eligibility. Your completed application will
not be forwarded to programs if the October test result for Part I is "fail". Applicants
that do not pass by the February test results for the
Part II Written will not participate in
the Match. Please
see the "Application Fees" section for information about our refund policy.
Please complete the score release form as soon as possible as we need to request
the results from Prometric. We request the results for all applicants at
the same time. If the Release form is not completed by mid-October, we
cannot guarantee that your application will be marked complete after we upload
APMLE Part I results to CASPR web accounts, which will be the day after the October
We upload the APMLE Part I results after the October 26th, application/initial
designation deadline. Due to when the results of the February APMLE Part
II is released, we do not upload the APMLE Part II results until closer to Match
Day in March. This includes any previous graduates that participate.
For the previous graduates who wish for programs to know their APMLE Part II
results prior to March, have the option of uploading their results as part of their
application. Please be aware though that it will not be considered
official until we add the Part II results in March.
Viewing your Application
The only way to view your complete application or Part II is if you have
uploaded your photo. A link can be found on the "Reports" tab.
Copy of Application Fee
It is extremely important to keep both a digital and a hard copy of
all parts of your application for your records. There will be a charge for
requesting a copy of all or only part of your application (i.e. just LORs).
Please make the request in writing. We only accept credit card charges.
Please check the CASPR Directory page under "Applicant Requirements" to see what
Supplemental materials you may want to mail vs. uploading to your CASPRweb
account. Supplemental materials include an application fee, LORs, research
papers, CV, etc. In recent years the majority of the applicants upload the
documents programs require to their CASPRweb account while mailing the
Programs indicate on their directory page the deadline to receive Supplemental
materials which is usually the same day completed applications are delivered
online to programs.
Applicants that apply to programs with application fees will need to send a
check to the address provided in the "Applicant Requirements" section of the
directory page. When mailing materials to the programs, include a brief
letter explaining the items to make sure that it gets processed appropriately.
Programs will probably be looking for the supplemental materials closer to the
end of October/early November.
