New Requirement for ERAS 2018 Applicants to Emergency Medicine Programs
May 8, 2017
Filed under: ERAS 2018

For the ERAS 2018 application season, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) is launching a pilot of their Standardized Video Interview (SVI) program. The SVI pilot is a mandatory requirement for ERAS 2018 applicants to Emergency Medicine programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Emergency Medicine program directors will include the video interview as a component when evaluating applications. The SVI does not replace or replicate in-person interviews.

The deadline to complete the video interview is July 31, 2017, so ERAS applicants planning to apply to ACGME-accredited Emergency Medicine programs are encouraged to purchase their ERAS Token and register with MyERAS early to allow enough time to complete the SVI process. Tokens for ERAS 2018 are expected to be available for purchase through OASIS or the MyECFMG mobile app beginning June 20, 2017.
