ERAS Information

  • ERAS is an online application service designed to assist students with the transmission of application data, such as:

    • Dean’s Letters (MSPEs)
    • Medical school transcripts
    • COMLEX/USMLE scores
    • Student pictures
    • Recommendation letters to programs of choice for internship/residency.


    Important: The majority of programs will only accept applications through ERAS. However, as indicated earlier, there are a few programs who still utilize independent applications, so students are encouraged to contact program directors to confirm their preferred method of application.

    The ERAS System has four main components:

    1. MyERAS website - Students complete their portion of the application process.
    2. Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS) - The Registrar’s Office sends supporting documents for students and transmits data to the student’s programs of choice.
    3. Program Directors Workstation (PDWS) - Internship and residency programs view and rank applicants.
    4. ERAS PostOffice - Students use this central transmission database to monitor the activity of their file using the ERAS Tracking System (ADTS). | ERAS PostOffice Tutorial (ATDTS)

    Deadlines and associated fee information for ERAS is posted to their Web site annually.

    Special Note: ERAS is only a method of transmitting internship/residency application data - it does not constitute the residency/internship Match itself, which is detailed in Step 3 of the Residency Match. You will still need to investigate programs, complete your portion of ERAS and ensure that the appropriate supporting documents are mailed to the Registrar’s Office for uploading into ERAS (photo, letters of recommendation and transcript). You must also apply and pay the required fees for participation in the Match.
