Electronic Residency Application Service


ERAS® streamlines the residency application process for applicants, their Designated Dean's Offices, Letter of Recommendation (LOR) authors, and program directors. By providing applicants the ability to build and deliver their application and supporting materials individually or as a package to programs, ERAS provides a centralized, but flexible solution to the residency application and documents distribution process.  


To provide a centralized online application service for students to use to deliver their application, along with supporting documents, to residency programs.  

Token Distribution  

Students will be granted access to ERAS at the beginning of their third year of study (OMS III). Students will receive an email invite (token) once the Office of the Registrar has confirmed eligibility and notified ERAS. The token is used to confirm student eligibility to register for MyERAS.     

Required Documents/Records  

Students are required to upload most documents via the MyERAS portal. The Office of the Registrar will upload official transcripts and the completed Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE).   

Letters of Recommendation  

Letters of Recommendation must be uploaded via the Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP) by the author of the letter. Students will need to complete and provide a Letter Request Form when requesting a Letter of Recommendation. The Letter Request Form will include a Letter ID, which connects the Letter of Recommendation to the student’s application in ERAS.
