    Timeline for 2014 ERAS Residency Application

    Advertisements



    For those going through the 2014 Match, below is a timeline with target dates to keep in mind. Hope you find this useful as you prepare for the application process.

    1) Towards the end of this month (June): Go to OASIS to get your ERAS token. The token allows you to access your application. Token costs $50


    Late June: ERAS 2014 residency Tokens become available through ECFMGs OASIS.


    2) July 1: Register your token and start working on your application.

    *You should try to keep an updated CV/resume on hand as it will make filling out the ERAS application a lot easier.
    July 1: Applicants may begin registering their Tokens on the AAMCs MyERAS website.



    Reminder: ERAS Support Services at ECFMG no longer accepts paper documents in support of ERAS residency applications. All supporting documents must be submitted electronically via one of the available methods.

    Documents uploaded using ECFMGs OASIS and AAMCs LoR Portal will take two weeks to process.

    Monitor the ADTS section of AAMCs MyERAS website to track the status of your ERAS application.



    3) September 1: Try to have all of your LORs, personal statements and other supported documents uploaded to your ERAS application. MSPE and transcript will be uploaded by the school.

    4) September 15: Start submitting your application to programs. Application has to be submitted by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on September 15.


    *Start researching programs right now so when the 15th comes you're not spending your whole day picking programs. A good place to start is www.matcharesident.com. Always look at the school's recent match list and match lists from other Caribbean schools (SGU, Ross, AUC) to get an idea which programs are IMG friendly.

    While I agree with most of what you wrote the bold part about submitting applications by Sept 15th is completely wrong. You can submit applications up through February. You do need to first certify your application before you send it to programs but again there is no Sept 15th cut off for this as far as I know. MSPE doesn't even get uploaded until October 1st and many people did not send out applications until this time. I know I personally sent out extra applications to a few programs that opened just after Oct 1st as they received their ACGME accreditation to allow them to enroll in this years match just a little late.

    also you want to factor about 4 weeks (not just 2) at the busiest point for ERAS uploads...meaning you should ask your LoR writers in july for letters so they have enough time to get your letters to ERAS and they are uploaded by sept 15th.

    @medic300107: You're right. I should have clarified that the Sept. 15th date is a soft deadline to certify applications as programs start downloading application materials on this date. While applications aren't considered "complete" until the MSPE is uploaded on Oct. 1, I feel that students should aim to certify their applications as early as possible since interviews start getting offered after Sept. 15th.

    @rokshana: I agree that 4 weeks is a good model for applicants to work with so that those applying will have everything uploaded by Sept. 1. Since starting this application season only electronic submissions of LORs will be accepted, I would even argue students should start working on their LORs now in case there are issues with uploading letters to ERAS or there is a need to follow up with letter writers.
