Submitting Support Documents Now
ERAS Support Services at ECFMG strongly recommends that all supporting documents be submitted electronically by one of the available methods listed on the ERAS website, no later than September 1st in order to be transmitted to programs on September 15th.
Documents submitted by your institution on behalf of your students via the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) will be processed and transmitted within two business days.
Please note: There is no deadline to submit documents – we will continue to process documents throughout the entire application season, and your application documents can be added even after you have applied to programs. However, programs do set their own individual deadlines for receiving applications and supporting documents. Please research this information before applying to programs.
