Endocrinology ERAS Application Cost and Deadlines

Is the ERAS Application Cost Expensive?

eras application costWhen you consider the value to your career of taking part in a good endocrinology fellowship program you will soon realize that the few hundred dollars that you are charged through ERAS and also NRMP to find the right place for you is peanuts. ERAS or the Electronic Residency Application Service is accessed through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and allows you to lodge all of your application details. It also allows you to search through over 400 teaching hospitals and 145 medical schools to find the right residency program for you.
The Match through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) will then try to find you the right program from the many that are available using your preferences and the information that you provide through ERAS. Each of these bodies is a not for profit organization and uses your application fees to administer the services that you are using.

ERAS Application Costs

The cost of using ERAS depends very much on the number of programs that you will apply to. The following are the current fees:

Number of Programs Fee
Up to 10 $97
11 to 20 Additional $11 each
21 to 30 Additional $16 each
31 upwards Additional $26 each

So if you are applying to 15 programs you will be charged $97 + (5 x $11) = $152
If you apply to 23 you will pay $97 + (10 x $11) + (3 x $16) = $255


ERAS is where you will have to upload all of the application information that the different residency programs will want to review before they make their choices as to who they want. All of the following information is required to be uploaded by yourself or through your deans office and other bodies:

  • Your MyERAS application form
  • Personal statements (you can create multiple versions and assign to specific applications)
  • Medical School transcripts
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
  • Create a list of authors for your Letters of Recommendation (LoR). The authors will then upload your letters
  • directly into the ERAS system.
  • PTAL (Postgraduate Training Authorization Letter or California letter for those applying there)
  • Transcript for USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination)
  • Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) status report for overseas applicants

Once you have uploaded and confirmed that your data is complete you will be able to then review and apply to the many residencies that you can access through ERAS. You can assign documents such as your endocrinology personal statement to specific applications which is important if you are applying to multiple specialties or you want to target a specific post.

On top of your ERAS fees you will also be charged for using the match (NRMP):

Type of fee Fee
Application (up to 20 programs to be ranked) $70
Late Fee $50
Additional Programs $30 per program

The match allows you to create a preference list for the posts that you are applying to. It will then use a computerized algorithm to match you to a similar list generated by each program as to their preferences for students.
