Application Process

Applying to the Stanford/Kaiser Emergency Medicine Residency Program

The Stanford Emergency Medicine Residency no longer accepts paper applications. Contact ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) of the Association of American Medical Colleges to submit an electronic application and to view their applicant information pages. All Emergency Medicine residencies use the same ERAS. 

Residency applications, letters of recommendation, Dean's Letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from medical schools are transmitted electronically to the respective residency program directors. Use the MyERAS website to transmit this information to your student affairs, academic affairs, or other designated Dean's Office.

At the Dean's Office, the completed electronic application and designation list are uploaded to the Dean's Office Workstation and joined with your transcripts, Dean's Letter, and recommendations in an electronic file folder. Software at the Dean's Office Workstation transmits the files for the programs designated by you to the electronic ERAS Post Office which then re-routes the applications to the appropriate programs.

Application Requirements:

  1. ERAS Common Application Form
  2. Dean's Letter
  3. Medical School Transcripts
  4. 3 Letters of Recommendation
  5. Personal Statement
  6. Board Scores ( USMLE, FLEX, COMLEX, etc.)
  7. Passport type photo
