Residency Frequency Asked Questions:

Q: What photo is supplied to ERAS?
A: Unless you provide a new photo (recommended) by our deadline, we will use your Convocation photo. The deadline is June 20, 2014.

Q: Are there any requirements for the photo?
A: The AAMC guidelines are:
Photos must not exceed 3 x 4 inches in size and the file size cannot exceed 100 KB. Save the image at a resolution of 150 dots per inch (dpi), with a .jpg extension if scanning photographs outside of ERAS and/or using a digital camera. Photo must be in color. It must show a full front view of the person's head and shoulders, with full face centered in the middle of the photograph. It must have a plain white or light colored background. Dark colored backgrounds do not display very well in the program's software.

Q: What can I do if I can't save my photo in the size and resolution required?
A: Just send us the original file and we will size it properly for ERAS.

Q: Where do I send my photo?
A: Please email the photo to som_eras@wright.edu before the deadline.

Q: I used ERAS in a past year and now need to apply for a new residency. What do I need to do?
A: You need to notify us at som_eras@wright.edu for a new token. Details about the current process are available on this webpage.

Q:  What are the ERAS 2015 fees?
