GME Application Process | Residency & Fellowship Programs | MedStar Health
A medical professional works at a computer.

To apply for residency or fellowship you must go through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), an internet-based applications process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit applications, letters of recommendation, program director letters, medical transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants, residency programs and medical schools to fellowship program directors using the internet.

For information about the process or to register for ERAS on the web, please go to

Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, we will contact candidates about the possibility of an interview.


Once you have applied to your desired residency or fellowship program through ERAS and accepted our invitation to interview with our faculty, fellows and staff, we hope you will choose to rank us at the top of your list of desirable training programs.

The outcome will be determined through the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP), a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for residency and fellowship positions with program directors' preferences for applicants.
