Format and Content Development

The supplemental ERAS application includes three sections: 

  • Past Experiences 
  • Geographic Preferences 
  • Program Signals 

AAMC staff experts in assessment, psychometrics, and selection processes developed the application content in consultation with other stakeholders within the medical education community, including program staff, student affairs representatives, and current residents who participated in content reviews.

Consistent with best practices, all content was reviewed by a diverse group of external subject matter experts, including program directors and coordinators, current residents, and student affairs representatives to ensure that it is relevant, accessible, and fair for all applicants. Evaluation of year 1 of the supplemental ERAS application also examined fairness through analysis of applicant responses. See supplemental ERAS application data and reports for year 1 analysis.
