About the supplemental ERAS® application

New section

In addition to the main MyERAS® application, 16 specialties used a supplemental ERAS® application during the 2023 ERAS season. This short, free supplemental application featured questions to help applicants share more information about themselves with programs. 

New section

Applicants who were interested in applying in one of these specialties, could refer to the Frequently Asked Questions and details below.


A short and free supplemental ERAS application with questions designed to showcase applicants' previous experiences and interests. Applicants were asked to provide:

  • Geographic information (by region and by urban/rural setting)
  • Information about their most meaningful work, volunteer or research experiences; and
  • Program signals


This impacted ERAS 2023 residency applicants who were interested in applying to participating programs in the 16 participating specialties. There will not be a separate supplemental ERAS application for 2024.


On Aug. 1, 2022, applicants who initiated a MyERAS application received an email from the AAMC inviting them to complete the supplemental ERAS application. Applicants had to complete and submit their responses before the Sept. 16 at 5 p.m. ET application deadline. Supplemental ERAS applications submitted became available to programs on Sept. 28.
