New LoR Policy for ERAS 2016

Starting in ERAS 2016, all LoRs will be uploaded using the ERAS Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP) by your LoR Authors or their designee.

This is a change from past seasons and we wanted you to be aware as you begin contacting your LoR Authors.

When the ERAS 2016 season opens in May, you will be able to add your LoR Authors in your MyERAS Application and only after that, your LoR Authors will be able to upload their letters for you. In order to do this, each of your LoR Authors will need to set up an account and upload their letters using the information you will provide to them once you have access to your application in May.

In the meantime, we have created the following letter that you can give to your LoR Authors that explains the new process and their role in it.

IMG applicants please visit the ECFMG website for more information.
