ERAS® for Programs

Welcome to the ERAS 2020 Season

The ERAS 2020 season will open for preseason setup Thursday, June 20, 2019 for July and September cycle programs and institutions. Please ensure that everyone at your institution who requires access to the Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS) has the appropriate privileges. You can assign these by going to Manage Users under the Setup tab.

  • Anyone who had either an “Active” and “Verified” status last season are automatically granted the same access this season.
  • If a user has left your program, please be sure to “Revoke” their PDWS role.

While the Program Directors’ WorkStation (PDWS) is designed to be user-friendly, we have numerous resources and training to help your staff learn how to maximize the features in the PDWS to streamline your program’s application process.

Interview Season Recommendation

Because interview time is such a busy period for applicants, schools, and programs alike, the ERAS Advisory Committee is working to help raise awareness and offer suggestions for addressing some behaviors that have an impact on the interview process . Additionally, the AAMC offers a best practice interview guide that provides ideas for conducting effective interviews. The AAMC is committed to improving the transition to residency by providing better information and additional tools to support applicants, advisors, and program directors.
