How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Nephrology Fellowship Program at Georgetown University Hospital through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS): 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

Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, Georgetown will contact candidates about the possibility of an interview. Interviews will be scheduled in the early fall.



Once you have applied to The Nephrology Fellowship Program and accepted our invitation to interview with our faculty, fellows and staff, we hope you will choose to rank Georgetown at the top of your list of desirable training programs in Nephrology Medicine.
Georgetown participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Nephrology Medicine. 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
