How to Apply

ERAS The Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Residency Program in Internal Medicine accepts applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional. The additional information collected through the supplemental application will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and will help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.
