For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.
In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. 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
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.
We are tentatively planning to hold virtual interviews of the applicants as per guidance from the AAMC for the 2022-2023 season. Click here to learn more about the AAMC Interview Guidance. The recommendations are as follows:
-Recommendation #1: Programs should conduct virtual interviews for all applicants (including local applicants) for the 2022-23 cycle.
-Recommendation #2: Hybrid interviewing within the same program is strongly discouraged for the 2022-23 cycle.
-Recommendation #3: Programs should share their interviewing plans with applicants clearly and early, preferably when application requirements are released.
-Recommendation #4: Programs should prepare for the interview cycle by reviewing resources on anti-bias practices, best practices in creating and implementing virtual interviews, and creating tools for recruiting in a virtual context.
-Recommendation #5: Organizations should commit to collaborative research to explore key aspects and outcomes of in-person and virtual interviews.
Information for future in-person interviews (Hopefully, for Match 2024)
