Emergency medicine (EM) will be participating in preference signaling (aka program signaling) as a pilot in the 2022-2023 residency application cycle through the ERAS Supplemental Application. EM will NOT be participating in the other two components of the ERAS Supplemental Application (Past Experiences, Geographic Preferences).
Please visit the Supplemental ERAS application website to sign up for upcoming webinars for advisors, applicants and program directors. Up to date guides and FAQs will also be posted on this ERAS website beginning in May 2022.
Representatives from the Council of Residency Directors in EM (CORD) Application Process Improvement Committee (APIC), CORD Advising Students Committee in EM (ASC-EM), Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) Clerkship Directors in EM (CDEM), SAEM Residents and Medical Students (RAMS), Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA), and American Academy of Emergency Medicine Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA) [herein referred to as the PS Working Group (PSWG)] will be working together to create EM specific educational materials, which will expand on the content provided by the AAMC and will be posted to this webpage when available.
Please save the date for the following upcoming webinars regarding PS in EM (further details forthcoming):

The PSWG will be working with the AAMC on various research projects surrounding the implementation of PS in EM. You do not require the approval of ERAS or the PSWG to perform your own research on PS in EM. However, it would be in everyone’s best interest to work together and not duplicate research efforts, therefore we request you contact Alexis Pelletier-Bui (firstname.lastname@example.org) with research ideas surrounding PS. There will be opportunities to work with the PSWG and AAMC on individual projects. If you bring forth an idea that the AAMC or PSWG already plans to research, we can connect you with the appropriate individuals to combine efforts. Alternatively, if you bring forth a project that has not already been proposed, we may be able to connect you with the resources/data you may need for your project.
Please read the following AAMC research expectations/regulations regarding PS & the ERAS supplemental application:
You can use the ERAS data from your program for research and survey purposes. When conducting your research, please abide by the following guidelines:
