For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating to receive information from the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional. In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help students share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our programs’ setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application includes: 

  • geographic preferences (by region and by urban or rural setting);
  • information about their most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • program signals.

Initial invitations to access to the supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on August 1st. The supplemental ERAS application must be completed between August 1 - September 16, 2022 at 5:00pm ET.
