Residency Application Process

We have registered our Emergency Medicine residency program with the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  This service uses the internet to transmit residency applications, letters of recommendation, Dean's letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from medical schools to residency program directors.  We encourage you to use the ERAS Student Workstation software provided by your medical school.

You will complete an application and program designation list on a Student Workstation data storage device.  You then deliver this data storage device to your student affairs, academic affairs, or other designated dean's office.  At the dean's office, the completed electronic application and designation list are uploaded to the Dean's Office Workstation and joined with your transcripts, Dean's letter, and recommendations in an electronic file.  Software at the Dean's Office Workstation transmits the files for the programs designated by you to the electronic ERAS Post Office, which then reroutes the applications to the residency programs of your choice.
