The Career Services Office facilitates many aspects of the Residency Application process for Fourth Year DO students. This includes writing the Dean's Letter, or Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), handling letters of recommendations from physicians, reviewing student CVs and Personal Statements and coordinating the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) process. Access to ERAS commences for each class on July 1 at the end of Third Year.
** Please submit all ERAS-related questions to the following campus e-mail address: ERAS@unthsc.edu or to the AAMC ERAS help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call ERAS at (202) 862-6264.
