  • All E*Value data must show the "N" (number of responses).

About the application process:

About letters:

  • DO ask for a letter of recommendation from your department chair. The letter should be addressed to the Academy of Medical Educators and emailed by your chair's office directly to landk@medsch.ucsf.edu. (The letter may be jointly signed by your department chair and division chief.)
  • DO notify other references, as applicable, that the Academy will be requesting letters. (Note that we will not supply any supporting materials with our request.)
  • DO NOT include letters of recommendation with your application.

About formatting:

  • Number the pages of your application.
  • Educator's Portfolio must not exceed 10 pages.
  • Personal statement must not exceed 2 pages.
  • Please use 11 point minimum Arial font with one-inch left and right margins.
  • Please do not duplicate information. If something fits in two categories, include it in the category where it fits the best and then refer to it in other categories.
  • For those applying in Advising and Mentoring, the mentee table must designate medical students and residents by their year of MD (i.e. current 1st year MS = MD 2016; current typical intern = MD 2012), NOT by name.
  • No addenda will be accepted with your application, including student comments.
