MyERAS Interview Scheduler
For the ERAS 2017 season, we have developed an interview scheduling tool that gives programs the ability to send interview invitations to applicants and also allows applicants to schedule themselves for interviews within the ERAS system.
Information about the new Interviews section in MyERAS is available in the MyERAS User Guide. In addition to updating the User Guide, we have created a PowerPoint that provides an overview of the different areas of the Interviews section, as well as details on how to Schedule, Waitlist, Cancel and Decline interviews in MyERAS. The Overview of MyERAS Interview Scheduler PowerPoint can be found on the Tools for Residency Applicants page on the ERAS website.
When the ERAS 2017 season opened, we launched the modernized DWS and consolidated several reports that were available in the legacy system. As an additional enhancement we are working on providing the ability to customize reports.
To ensure that DWS users have access to all relevant information within the system, we are seeking recommendations for new reports. Some things to consider when identifying new reports are: data fields, program(s) information, applicant statuses, and user management information.
Please submit suggestions for new reports to ERASCommunications@aamc.org. We value our user’s feedback and are continuously working to make improvements.
Components of the MyERAS Application
The following document types and quantities constitute a MyERAS application and as such should only be delivered to programs using the ERAS system. Programs may request materials in addition to those listed below in order to evaluate applicants; arrangements must be made to deliver those materials outside of the ERAS systems.
- MyERAS application (1)
- Personal statement (1)
- Photograph (1)
- Exam transcript (1)USMLE or COMLEX (depending on program type)
- Medical School Transcript (1)
- Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) (1)
- Letters of Recommendation (4)
Note: Programs may request narrative letters or use standardized letters/forms. If a standardized letter/form is used and asks that a narrative letter be included as well, then they may be uploaded together as one file.
Medical Institution Document Upload Service (MIDUS)
The EFDO Medical Institution Document Upload Service (MIDUS) provides medical schools with the ability to upload the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) and medical school transcript directly to the ERAS Fellowship Document Office on behalf of an applicant. In order for a medical institution to upload a document using MIDUS, applicants must send an electronic request to their medical institution using EFDO On-line Services.
