Given the large volume of applications that we receive, we encourage you to add a paragraph to your personal statement letting us know why you are interested in our program in particular. This is optional but helps us identify applicants who may be a good fit for our program.

Supplemental ERAS Application

For the 2023 ERAS cycle, our program will also be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application provides:

  • geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting); 
  • information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • program signals.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.
