ERAS Sıkça Sorular Sorular - "Fellowship"
How do I obtain a token to apply for a fellowship position?
Fellowship applicants should contact the ERAS Fellowships Documents Office (EFDO). They are the designated Dean's Office for Fellowship applicants. Please visit the EFDO Web site to obtain your token.
I am a US graduate applying for a fellowship position; do I still send all my supporting documents to my medical school?
All fellowship applicants, both international and US graduates, will send all supporting documents to the EFDO. If you are a US graduate you may have to request your MSPE and medical school transcript from your designated dean's office. Depending on the policy of your dean's office, they may send your documents to the EFDO on your behalf or you may be responsible for sending it. Please ask your designated deans office for clarification.
If it costs $100 to apply for 10 fellowship programs, do I have to apply to all 10 at the same time?
You do not have to apply to all 10 programs at one time. You may apply to a few programs now and then the rest later. There is no time limit.
What is ERAS Fellowships?
ERAS Fellowships is a service that transmits fellowship applications, letters of recommendation (LoRs), Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPEs), medical school transcripts, USMLE transcripts, COMLEX transcripts, and other supporting credentials from you and the ERAS Fellowships Documents Office (EFDO) to program directors via the Internet.
I applied to a program; however, they are not participating with ERAS. May I receive a refund?
ERAS does not offer refunds for any reason. Refunds will not be given for applications sent to programs not participating in ERAS or whose deadlines have passed. You should contact the program before applying via ERAS.
The primary role of ERAS is to deliver your application and supporting documents to designated programs. This is no different than placing a stamp on an envelope and requesting that USPS deliver the packet to a destination or have FedEx or UPS send the packet to programs. Regardless of whether the program accepts the packet or decides to review the packet, the deliverer has rendered service when the package is delivered.
Similarly, ERAS uses the Internet to transmit application materials to programs designated by you for delivery. Although we make every effort to ensure that our data is up-to-date, programs may not always communicate to ERAS their intention to accept applications; or a program's status may change after our data has been finalized and distributed. Therefore, it is imperative that you make direct contact with the programs in which you are interested, in order to find out program requirements and deadlines.
How do I register with MyERAS if I am applying for both a residency and fellowship position?
An applicant applying to both a residency and fellowship position is considered a dual applicant. The residency token has to be obtained from your designated dean's office (US medical school of graduation or ECFMG ). The fellowship token should be obtained from the EFDO . When registering the second token, please indicate the AAMC ID obtained after successful registration of the first token.
Dual applicants will only have one AAMC ID. Once you sign in, you will be able to select between your residency and fellowship application. Make sure you are signing into the correct one each time.
I applied for fellowship positions last year. How do I sign in to get a copy of my application?
ERAS purges all data in the ERAS Post Office on May 31st of each year. We do not have data from previous years.
