Supplemental Application:

For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program is encouraging applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also will be required to complete the MyERAS application.

The additional information will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

This supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform outside the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1 and September 30.

Please bookmark the supplemental ERAS application section of the AAMC website to find the latest information, FAQs, and resources.

  • Is there a minimum USMLE score applicants need to have in order to apply?
    We do not have a minimum score requirement, but a competitive score will increase the strength of your application.

  • Which visas do you support, if any?
    We do not provide visa support.
