Sample ERAS application

December 31, 2011

I found a link to a sample ERAS application here. Although written by an American medical school, I think that this document can be quite helpful to the IMG community. It includes sample CV, sample MyERAS and sample personal statements. It also includes interview tips.

The document gives insight into how to report your experience, your activities and your hobbies.

Pay particular attention to how the CV template looks and how the sample ERAS application reads.

The descriptions of activities is very well phrased, note how short they are. If you can model your ERAS application after the sample provided, your application will benefit.

The document also has a “how to write your personal statement” section which is quite helpful as well (page 33). The document also has several sample personal statements which gives you an idea of how to style your statement.

Also see a CV related post on the University of Washington School of Medicine site here.
