Information for international medical students/graduates on the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®) 2018 application season is now available. If you plan to apply for U.S. residency positions that begin in July 2018, visit the ERAS Support Services section of the ECFMG website for important information. Most U.S. residency programs participate in ERAS. If you apply to participating programs, you must use ERAS to do so.
At the ERAS Support Services section of the ECFMG website, you will be able to:
- See an overview of the Application Process and Timeline.
- View instructions on how to obtain an ERAS Token, which will enable you to register at the MyERAS website of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and work on your residency applications.
- Find instructions for submitting your supporting documents, such as letters of recommendation and transcripts.
ERAS Support Services will transmit your supporting documents to your ERAS application. All supporting documents must be submitted electronically. For more details, please refer to the “Upload Your Documents Now” e-mail that will be sent to you via the MyERAS Message Center after you have registered at MyERAS.
Residency Tokens for the ERAS 2018 application season are expected to be available through ECFMG’s On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS) and the MyECFMG mobile app beginning June 20, 2017. You can use a 2018 Token to register with AAMC’s MyERAS beginning June 20, 2017.
