The ERAS Process
Four components comprise ERAS: the applicant’s Web application (MyERAS), the Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS), the Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS), and the ERAS PostOffice. Applicants must go to the ERAS Web site to complete an application and program designation list and to transmit them to the electronic ERAS PostOffice for processing. The designated dean’s office attaches the applicant’s transcripts, Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE)/dean’s letter, and letters of recommendation using the DWS, then transmits the documents to the ERAS PostOffice for the programs designated by the applicant. The program directors download application materials using the PDWS from the ERAS PostOffice.
