How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Georgetown University Hospital through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service).  ERAS is an internet-based application 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.  Upon receiving your application through ERAS, our program coordinator will contact candidates about interviews.  Interviews are scheduled during September and October. For information about the process or to register for ERAS on the web, please go to www.aamc.org/eras.

 

The “MATCH”

The Georgetown Fellowship participates 100% in the match and is “all in”.  We feel that the match is the ideal opportunity for candidates to find the best training program for their needs and for programs to find the best learners for their program.  Once you have applied to the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program and interviewed with our faculty, fellows, and staff, we hope that you will rank Georgetown at the top of your list for training programs in Infectious Diseases. 
Georgetown participates in the Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Infectious Diseases.  This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors preferences for applications.
