Joining ERAS

Joining ERAS®

ERAS streamlines the recruitment process for programs by transmitting applications and supporting documents online. Then with the help of Program Director's Workstation (PDWS), programs are able to quickly and efficiently manage their applicant pool.

ERAS is your partner during the recruitment process. We look forward to having you join us.

Preparing Your Specialty

Programs cannot join ERAS on an individual basis; a commitment from the entire specialty is required. To join, specialties must meet these requirements:

  • Specialty leadership must contact ERAS at
  • 80 percent of programs must agree to use ERAS
  • Specialties must come to a decision to join ERAS before November 1 each year

For more information, try contacting other ERAS users at your institution and learn about their experience.
