For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in 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. 

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. This helps us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission. 

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform outside the MyERAS application and must be completed between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30.
