Program Signaling

Our program will continue program signaling for this upcoming recruitment season. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; program signaling is optional. A program signal gives applicant’s opportunity to express genuine interest in a residency program. Applicants may choose to send a total of 18 signals with their MyERAS application (3 gold signals for programs of highest interest and 15 silver signals for programs of high interest).
