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.

Authors Writing for:

USMG Residency Applicants - LoRs can still be sent directly to medical schools to be uploaded into ERAS. Medical schools and programs will see the LoR in their software regardless of how the LoR is uploaded.

IMG and Fellowship Applicants - ECFMG and EFDO no longer accept paper LoRs in support of MyERAS applications. Paper LoRs submitted via mail or courier service will NOT be scanned or attached to the MyERAS application. All supporting LoRs must be submitted electronically using the LoRP.

New for ERAS 2015

Watermarks on LoRs uploaded from the LoRP will also include the name of the person uploading the letter in addition to the source of upload and the date. We will display the First and Last Name that was entered when the user registered for their LoRP account.
