The Career Center facilitates many aspects of the Residency Application process for Fourth Year DO students. This includes writing the Medical Student Performance Evaluatoin, or MSPE (aka, “Dean’s Letter”), reviewing student CVs and Personal Statements and coordinating the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) process. Access to ERAS commences for each class annually in early June at the end of Third Year.
** Please submit all ERAS-related questions to the following campus e-mail address: ERAS@unthsc.edu or to the AAMC ERAS help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call ERAS at (202) 862-6264. We will send all ERAS-related communication from the UNTHSC ERAS e-mail address to UNTHSC-issued student e-mail addresses.
Also, follow us on Twitter for important ERAS messages: @UNTHSCareers **
