Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP)

The ERAS Letter of Recommendation Portal ( LoRP ) is a tool designed to provide added flexibility for LoR Authors and reduce the scanning and uploading burden for medical schools.

New LoR Process for ERAS 2016

Effective ERAS 2016, all letters of recommendation must be uploaded by you or your designee using the LoRP. Medical schools will no longer be able to upload letters on your behalf.

We realize this is a change in how things have historically been done, so here is a summary of the changes for the upcoming season:

  • Letters can only be uploaded once the ERAS 2016 season opens in May.

  • At that time, applicants will provide you with a Letter Request Form that includes instructions for the LoRP as well as a unique identifier for each LoR you are asked to upload.

  • If you do not already have an account, you will be asked to create an AAMC account in order to gain access to the LoRP.

  • Account creation is simple and only requires your name and email address.

  • Please do not send letters to the AAMC/ERAS; they will be returned.
