The Office of Student Services implements the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
ERAS consists of four components: the Web-based Applicant site (called MyERAS), the Dean's Office Workstation (DWS), the Program Director's Workstation (PDWS) and the ERAS PostOffice (ERAS PO). ERAS opens in April and can be accessed through the AAMC Website (www.aamc.org). A Token Number is required to access MyERAS for the first time. NYIT-COM students will be sent a Token Request Form in April which will result in a Token Number. Once the token is received, students can log onto MyERAS using any Web browser and begin working on the CAF (Common Application Form) and Personal Statement.
The Office of Student Services is responsible for attaching supporting documentation Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), Letters of Recommendation (LoR), Photograph, and NYIT-COM transcript to the ERAS application. Once received, the supporting documentation is scanned into the student's application and transmitted to the ERAS PostOffice. Residency programs are able to download this information by connecting to the ERAS PostOffice using their Program Director's Workstation. Program Directors can review, sort and print applications using criteria established by their program. Students are able to track the status of their application through the ADTS (Applicant Document Tracking System) in ERAS.

Use this form when requesting Letters of Recommendation. ERAS IDs will be assigned when the ERAS site opens for the Class of 2016; however, the number is not necessary for the form. Completed letters along with Request Form should be sent to:
