Optional: Supplemental ERAS Application

For the 2024 ERAS® cycle, our program will strongly encourage applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also will be required to complete the MyERAS application.

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

Please visit the ERAS application section of the AAMC website to find the latest information, FAQs, and resources.
