Residency Tokens for the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®) 2021 application season are now available through ECFMG’s On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS). You can use a 2021 Token to register at the MyERAS website of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), effective Tuesday, June 23, 2020, and begin work on your residency application.
If you plan to apply for U.S. residency positions that begin in July 2021, visit the ERAS Support Services section of the ECFMG website for important information and instructions on how to obtain an ERAS Token.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to be eligible to participate in the National Resident Matching Program® Main Residency Match®, which will be held in March 2021, IMGs must have a passing performance on the exams required for ECFMG Certification. The United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) program has suspended Step 2 CS exams for 12-18 months. ECFMG|FAIMER has published preliminary information on how qualified IMGs who have not passed Step 2 CS can meet the requirements for ECFMG Certification. You can learn more on the ECFMG website at https://www.ecfmg.org/certification-requirements-2021-match/.
