Our specialized approach to your ERAS application allows our physicians to give you insight into what ERAS program directors and ERAS committees are looking for.

The ERAS application is the single most important aspect of your ERAS candidate profile. For many applicants, the ERAS application is the deciding factor of whether they will be successful in securing an American medical residency. The ERAS interview is a candidate’s only chance at showcasing their strengths and passion for their subspecialty of choice in front of the ERAS review panel. Unlike medical school interviews, the ERAS interview emphasizes life experience, career goals and suitability for the specific medical specialty.

ERAS Application

USMLE Transcript:

The USMLE is an essential component of the ERAS medical residency application. All USLME attempts and scores are included on this transcript for medical residency review boards to evaluate. USMLE results are not uploaded directly. Applicants must manually release this document in order to be processed by ERAS.

Letters of Recommendation (LoRP):

Letters of reference for the ERAS residency application process is one of the most critical components. These letters provide authentic and validation of claims made by the medical residency applicant in the application. Choose the correct referees is integral in creating a competitive application. Most referees upload their letter directly to ERAS using the LoR portal (LoRP).

Medical School Transcript:

For most medical training programs, medical students are awarded a Pass or Fail grade. In select medical schools, Honours designations are provided for students achieving an average of over 80%. Traditionally, transcripts are used to distinguish candidates who have excelled academically, won academic awards and performance in the top 5% of their cohort. For International Medical Graduates, the medical school transcript can be uploaded directly via EMSWP or acquired and uploaded through ECFMG’s oasis platform. The Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS) is used to upload transcripts and MSPEs.

Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE):

The MSPE is an essential component of the ERAS American residency application. It is a summary of your academic and non-academic performance during medical school. Typically, evaluations are prepared by the Dean of medicine following your contribution of a CV, personal letter and letters of recommendation. For International Medical Graduates, the MSPE can be uploaded directly to the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP).
