ERAS News and Announcements
Review your MyERAS application before certifying and submitting
Once you certify and submit your applications, even during early opening, you will not be able to make any changes to those applications except to the Personal Information page of your MyERAS application. Fellowship applicants should be sure that you have entered all relevant previous or current training in the Experience section of the MyERAS application.
USMLE and/or COMLEX-USA Transcript Requests
In order for US Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) and/or Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination of the United States (COMLEX-USA) transcripts to be uploaded, you must:
- Enter a valid USMLE and/or National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) ID
- Authorize the release of your transcript on the Additional Documents page
- Assign the transcript to the programs to which you wish to send it
- Pay the one-time $80 transcript fee
All of these actions need to be taken before the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and/or the NBOME will be able to process a transcript request for you.
Applicants should keep in mind that the transcript fee cannot be paid prior to applying to programs. This fee will be included in the first invoice shown when applying to programs.
Assigning Additional Documents & the New Assignments Checklist
Documents need to be assigned to each of your selected programs in ERAS, before programs can access them. These include your ABSITE Transcript, Medical School Transcripts, MSPEs, Letters of Recommendation (LoRs), Personal Statements, Photo, and USMLE/COMLEX Transcript.
You can assign documents by using the Additional Documents tab and selecting “Assign” for each document. We recommend that you thoroughly research your target programs’ required documents and deadlines, so that you are able to assign the appropriate documents to those programs.
Finally, we have a new tool, the Assignments Checklist, for applicants to keep track of their document assignments. From the MyERAS Dashboard, click on the Programs tab, and select Assignments Checklist. Here you will be able to easily identify any missing assignments and make sure your documents are properly transmitted to programs.
Research your programs before applying in MyERAS
To assist applicants in making informed decisions about the programs that are the best fit for their interests and skills, programs may provide details about their selection criteria and application requirements. Informational icons will appear beside the name of programs that have provided additional information when you search for programs in MyERAS. You can view this information by clicking on the program link.
