Welcome to the ERAS 2018 Season

The ERAS 2018 season will open on June 6, 2017 at 9:00am ET, check out the full ERAS 2018 timeline for specific information. Once the season opens and you log into the DWS, you will have access to all ERAS 2018 functionality.

Below is a list of changes and enhancements we have made to MyERAS for the 2018 season.

MyERAS Terms and Conditions

MyERAS Terms and Conditions are set guidelines related to the use of the ERAS service. When applicants log into their AAMC account to register their token, they will be prompted to review the MyERAS Terms and Conditions. Applicants will be given the option to print and agree to the terms and conditions. In order to access the MyERAS application, applicants must accept the terms and conditions.

Application Import

Applicants that have certified and submitted a MyERAS application, during a previous application season (before ERAS 2018), will have the ability to import their prior application into the current season application. Using the new import feature, each application section will be transferred to the active application and applicants will have the ability to edit each section. Applicants must review and save each application section before they are able to Certify and Submit their ERAS 2018 application. The application import feature is only accessible before applicants certify and submit their application.

Applicants that have an application from a previous season will be given the option to import their application, after agreeing to the MyERAS Terms and Conditions. If an applicant does not import their application at that time, they have the ability to transfer their application information by using the Import button on the History tab.

ACGME - Osteopathic Recognition

The ACGME accredits residency and fellowship programs, in addition to granting recognition for additional program formats and components. Osteopathic Recognition for residency programs is supplemental to ACGME-accreditation. Recognition provides an additional acknowledgment that is conferred to programs that provide training in Osteopathic Principles and Practices (OPP).

Some programs that have Osteopathic Recognition offer trainings that are not specifically related to OPP. The MyERAS application distinguishes programs with Osteopathic Recognition using filters and visual indicators, in addition to information related to training types.
