With the support of their specialty leadership organizations, programs from the following specialties may participate in program signaling for the 2024 ERAS application recruitment season.
The AAMC provided all participating specialties with guidance about home and away rotations. The AAMC suggests that applicants signal their most interested programs regardless of whether they are home or away rotations. This is the most fair and equitable process for all applicant types (MD, DO, and IMGs) and provides all programs that participate in receiving signals with the same information about interest level.
|Specialty||Number of Program Signals|
|Anesthesiology||5 (gold), 10 (silver)|
|Child Neurology & Neurodevelopmental Disabilities||3|
|Dermatology||3 (gold), 25 (silver)|
|Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology||6 (gold), 6 (silver)|
|Internal Medicine & Psychiatry||2|
|Obstetrics and Gynecology||3 (gold), 15 (silver)|
|Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation||5|
|Public Health and General Preventive Medicine||3|
Due to the complexity of program signaling and in the interest of protecting applicants, the AAMC requires each interested specialty and individual programs from participating specialties to explicitly agree to participate in program signaling.
The AAMC seeks to ensure that specialties who choose to participate in program signaling for the 2024 ERAS application season:
- Are properly trained and equipped to use program signals as a part of a holistic review of applicants when deciding who to invite to an interview.
- Understand and have reviewed the research outcomes to date.
- Can make an informed decision about the number of signals available to applicants for their individual specialty together with AAMC assessment experts.
- Have ample time for early communication to applicants and advisors regarding specialty participation.
