For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program requires all applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also are required to complete the MyERAS application.

The additional information collected helps our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and will help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

This supplemental ERAS application is delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1-30.

Additional Information

  • Only ERAS applications will be accepted
  • All applicants will be selected through the NRMP match
  • Observerships and research experience will not be considered for clinical experience requirements
  • Applicants must be legally able to work in the U.S. or eligible to obtain work authorization (F1, H1B and J1 visas)
