How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Cardiolgy Fellowship Program at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). ERAS is an internet-based applications process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit fellowship 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 www.aamc.org/eras.

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

The “MATCH”

Georgetown participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP). This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors' preferences for applicants. For information about NRMP or to register on the web to participate in NRMP, please go to www.nrmp.org.
