NRMP ID Not Required for ERAS Application

Frequently Asked QuestionsJuly 31, 2017

Most applicants participating in the Main Residency Match® use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) offered by the Association of American Medical Colleges® to apply to residency training programs. Applicants should keep in mind that an NRMP ID IS NOT required to submit applications. However, after registering for the 2018 Main Residency Match when it opens September 15, applicants should log back in to ERAS and update their profile with their NRMP ID to make it easier for program directors to identify them for placement on the program’s rank order lists.
