ERAS® for Programs

Keyboard, stethoscope, four health care providers

Welcome to the ERAS 2019 Season

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the ERAS 2019 application season! September cycle programs will begin receiving application materials on Saturday, September 15 at 9:00 a.m. ET. 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.

We have created ERAS 2019 Updates to highlight the updates for the new season. The ERAS team has presented at numerous specialty meetings this past spring a summary of statistics presented about the ERAS 2018 season and SOAP® from recent meetings can be viewed here.

ERAS staff will be presenting a series of webinars for PDWS users over the next few months. Please register for those that interest you using the links below.
