2023 PDWS Resources

Welcome to the ERAS 2023 season!

The Program Director's WorkStation (PDWS) 2023 Getting Started Guide and User Guide detail all of the changes in the PDWS.

ERAS Community Site

The ERAS Community site provides PDWS users with an easy-to-use discussion forum where users can connect, engage and share their residency and fellowship recruitment process and best practices with other program members. The Community site is your go-to-place to connect with other members, ask for advice and share your expertise about the PDWS.

(Please note: Only users with active PDWS accounts will have access to the Community site.)

Webinar recordings, tutorials, job aids, and user guide are available through the ERAS Community site. They cover everything from a basic overview of the PDWS to pre-season prep, filters, and more. New resources will be released throughout the season as new functionality becomes available in the PDWS.

Log in to the ERAS Community site. Your username and password are the same as what you use for the PDWS application.

Understanding Unconscious Bias in Residency Recruitment

Unconscious bias may have a significant impact on the medical residency application process. In support of the ERAS team’s commitment to Training and Learning, the AAMC’s Office of Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion has developed and shared two informative videos available for your understanding of unconscious bias in academic medicine and the search and recruitment process.

Overall, the AAMC strives to build member capacity by improving institutions’ ability to use diversity as a driver of excellence. We develop strategic initiatives to cultivate a diverse and culturally prepared workforce, advance inclusion excellence, imbue equity-mindedness, and enhance engagement with local communities.
