Pediatric ERAS Fellowship Timeline – When and What to Do

eras fellowship timeline

Why Do You Need to Meet the ERAS Deadline?

The Electronic Residency Application Service or ERAS provides a service to fellowship applicants allowing them to upload their documentation, search fellowship programs and to then apply to them. This service is provided through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and provides you access to more than 400 teaching colleges and around 160 medical schools.

But if you want to ensure that you get the place that you want you will have to ensure that you get your applications completed on time, not just through ERAS but also through associated programs such as the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP or The Match.) This means doing some research to confirm when the cut off dates are for the various steps in each program for fellowship applications.

ERAS Requirements

Your application no matter what speciality or program you are applying to will require all of the following to be uploaded through your MyERAS login or through the office of the dean:


  • The ERAS fellowship application form
  • Personal Statement; you may upload multiple versions for different specialities if required
  • Medical School transcripts
  • MSPE; Medical Student Performance Evaluation report

  • PTAL or Postgraduate Training Authorization letter for applicants to California
