Additional Information about the Supplemental Application

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will collect and review data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement. Completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional. 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
  • Program signals.
