Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)
We Provide Professional Help In ERAS
The Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) is a national residency application process for American medical students and medical graduates worldwide interested in pursuing medical training in the United States. Pursuing residency in the United States affords unlimited opportunities to practice medicine worldwide in various medical subspecialties. At MedApplications, our medical consulting team is comprised of American medical physicians with specialties ranging from: Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Radiology, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine and Otolaryngology.
Our medical doctors have first-hand experience applying to ERAS, evaluating ERAS applications, facilitating ERAS interviews at the national and local level, in addition to screening International Medical Graduates (IMGs) and local American applications for competitiveness. In general, ERAS is considered one of the most competitive residency application streams, processing thousands of medical residency applications for a limited number of coveted American residency positions.
At MedApplications, our ERAS medical consulting team is composed of specialized doctors who have achieved success in the ERAS American residency matching process. Our doctors represent the most coveted medical subspecialties in North America. Our physicians proudly represent: Surgical Specialties, Radiology, Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Vascular Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Urology, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and General Surgery. Nearly all of our medical consultants have completed post-graduate fellowships, including, Critical Care, Trauma and Surgical/Internal Medicine Fellowships. Our specialized approach to your ERAS application allows our physicians to give you insight into what ERAS program directors and ERAS committees are looking for.
The ERAS application is the single most important aspect of your ERAS candidate profile. For many applicants, the ERAS application is the deciding factor of whether they will be successful in securing an American medical residency. The ERAS interview is a candidate’s only chance at showcasing their strengths and passion for their subspecialty of choice in front of the ERAS review panel. Unlike medical school interviews, the ERAS interview emphasizes life experience, career goals and suitability for the specific medical specialty.
How Does ERAS Work?
The ERAS Options:
- Applicants receive a token from their Designated Dean’s Office and use it to register with MyERAS.
- Applicants complete their MyERAS application, select programs, assign supporting documents, and apply to programs.
- Applicant’s Designated Dean’s Office and LoR authors upload supporting documents.
- Examining boards receive and process requests for transcripts.
- Programs receive application materials through the PDWS.
What MyERAS Portal Provides:
- The MyERAS portal allows candidates to complete their medical residency application, select medical residency programs, assign documents and submit their application to the desired ERAS medical residency programs.

The USMLE is an essential component of the ERAS medical residency application. All USLME attempts and scores are included on this transcript for medical residency review boards to evaluate. USMLE results are not uploaded directly. Applicants must manually release this document in order to be processed by ERAS.
Letters of Recommendation (LoRP)
Letters of reference for the ERAS residency application process is one of the most critical components. These letters provide authentic and validation of claims made by the medical residency applicant in the application. Choose the correct referees is integral in creating a competitive application. Most referees upload their letter directly to ERAS using the LoR portal (LoRP).
Medical School Transcript
For most medical training programs, medical students are awarded a Pass or Fail grade. In select medical schools, Honours designations are provided for students achieving an average of over 80%. Traditionally, transcripts are used to distinguish candidates who have excelled academically, won academic awards and performance in the top 5% of their cohort. For International Medical Graduates, the medical school transcript can be uploaded directly via EMSWP or acquired and uploaded through ECFMG’s oasis platform. The Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS) is used to upload transcripts and MSPEs.
Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
The MSPE is an essential component of the ERAS American residency application. It is a summary of your academic and non-academic performance during medical school. Typically, evaluations are prepared by the Dean of medicine following your contribution of a CV, personal letter and letters of recommendation. For International Medical Graduates, the MSPE can be uploaded directly to the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP).

Jess B (2018)
Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)
I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students.

“MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.

"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."

"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"

“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂

“Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”
Matthew L. (Class of 2018)
McMaster University Medicine
"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
