Register for MyERAS for Residency

How to identify your Designated Dean's Office and get your ERAS token.

To access MyERAS, first contact your Designated Dean’s Office; they will issue you an ERAS token, which is a one-time access code used to register on MyERAS.

Get Your Token

Each Designated Dean’s Office establishes their own token distribution procedures for residency applicants using ERAS. These dates may vary.

June 6, 2017

  • US Medical School Graduates (USMGs) - Contact your medical school of graduation.
  • Canadian Medical Graduates – Contact CaRMS

June 20, 2017

  • ERAS Support Services at ECFMG begin generating and distributing tokens to IMGs.
  • Applicants can register on MyERAS and begin working on their application.

Register on MyERAS

After obtaining your token from your Designated Dean's Office, you will register in the MyERAS application. Use the checklist and worksheet to determine what type of information you will need to gather to complete your application.

Note: Registration with ERAS does not register you for any established Match. ERAS is a separate entity and does not provide matching services. If you intend to participate in a Match, you must contact that organization for registration, eligibility and participation information (AOA, Military, NRMP, San Francisco or Urology).
