About Supporting Documents

Following are the documents that ERAS Support Services at ECFMG will upload to the ERAS application:

There are different methods for submitting supporting documents, depending on the document type. Refer to the detailed pages for each document type for specific instructions and to Submission At-a-Glance for an overview of all ERAS documents.

Please note that documents submitted to ECFMG via ECFMG’s On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS) may take one to two weeks to process.

If a program requests additional document types not listed on this page, you should make arrangements with the program to have these additional documents sent directly to the program. This practice is in accordance with the AAMC ERAS policy. ERAS will not process these documents.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some international medical schools submit supporting documents on behalf of their students/graduates who participate in ERAS through the secure ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP). Schools that participate in the EMSWP ERAS program can electronically submit supporting documents on behalf of ERAS applicants. If your medical school participates in EMSWP ERAS, you will not be able to submit your MSPE and transcripts using OASIS. Please contact your medical school to have these documents uploaded via EMSWP ERAS on your behalf. ERAS Support Services uploads these documents to your ERAS application within two business days of their receipt at ECFMG. Receipt of documents submitted electronically by medical schools can be tracked in the Verify Receipt of Documents section of OASIS. To find out if your medical school participates in EMSWP ERAS, you can use the MyECFMG mobile app or contact the Dean’s office at your medical school.
