ecfmgEffective with the ERAS 2014 application season, ERAS Support Services at ECFMG will no longer accept paper documents in support of ERAS residency applications. All supporting documents must be submitted electronically using one of the available methods listed below.

ERAS Residency Applicants: Use ECFMG’s OASIS

Applicants can electronically submit Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPEs), medical school transcripts, photographs, Postgraduate Training Authorization Letters (PTAL or “California Letter”), and  letters of recommendation (LoRs) if they have not waived their rights to view them, to ERAS Support Services using ECFMG’s On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS). Please note that students/graduates of medical schools that participate in the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) ERAS program cannot upload MSPEs or medical school transcripts using OASIS. These documents must be provided by the participating medical school.

International Medical Schools: Use ECFMG’s EMSWP

Through the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) ERAS program, international medical schools can electronically submit Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPEs), medical school transcripts, and letters of recommendation (LoRs) on behalf of their students and graduates who participate in ERAS. Participating schools can also track receipt of ERAS supporting documents by ECFMG and verify the ERAS registration activity of their students and graduates.

Letter of Recommendation Writers: Use AAMC’s ERAS LoR Portal

Applicants can request that letter writers electronically submit letters of recommendation on their behalf using the AAMC’s ERAS LoR Portal. Applicants can submit ERAS LoR Portal requests to their letter writers using their AAMC MyERAS account.
