Current and Former Residents and Fellows Resources

The Office of GME offers resources for current and former trainees.

All requests must bear the signature of the UI trainee who is requesting the duplicate diploma.

2. The statement should include:

the address to which the diploma should be mailed
your full legal name
University of Iowa ID number or last 4 digits of your SSN
Full name of training program
Start and end date of training program
Send a $50 check payable to Graduate Medical Education, University of Iowa. 
The fee covers the cost of printing and mailing.
