ERAS for Fellowships
A number of fellowship programs also use the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) for their application process. Eligibility for fellowship positions generally requires completion of a residency program. Contact the fellowship program for specific requirements and application procedures.
The ERAS Process for Fellowship Applicants
Contact programs directly to learn about their participation status in ERAS, the ERAS application cycle in which they are participating (July or December cycle), their program requirements, and the mechanism (ERAS or other) for applying to their programs.
Contact the ERAS Fellowships Documents Office (EFDO)(www.erasfellowshipdocuments.org) for an electronic token, instructions for accessing MyERAS, and information for completing the application process using ERAS.
Go to the ERAS website(students-residents.aamc.org) and complete your application and designation list. Use online help and the Fellowship Application Checklist(www.aamc.org) to guide you through the process of completing your ERAS application.
Use EFDO Online Services to submit your medical performance evaluation, medical school transcript, and a photograph. Letters of recommendation may be submitted through the ERAS LoR Portal. Contact your medical school to determine its policy on releasing medical school transcripts, and MSPEs. If your school will not release these directly to you, it may submit directly to the EFDO using its Medical Institution Document Upload Service.
Use ERAS’s "Programs Applied To" page to confirm that supporting documents were uploaded to ERAS and, later, that documents are downloaded by programs. Check your email frequently for requests for additional information and invitations.
Learn more by visiting the ERAS Fellowship Document Office website(www.erasfellowshipdocuments.org).
