    DWS Analytics for Schools

    Using ERAS® Data to Support Medical School Deans and Advisors

    Dean's Office WorkStation (DWS) Analytics for Schools enables medical school deans and advisors to harness the power of ERAS® data by generating a broad array of useful reports that provide insight into students’ activities in applying to residency. Medical school officials can access the rich and robust data that they can only get from the ERAS system to understand trends, identify new opportunities, evaluate, and measure impacts.

    All DWS users will have access to their institution’s reports. Users sign in with their AAMC username and password to access DWS Analytics for Schools.
