Yesterday the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) opened its digital doors to medical students applying to ACGME residency programs. So we thought it was a perfect time to host another EM Match Advice Series installment. This time, we focus on the challenges that the non-LCME applicant encounters throughout the ACGME application process. These applicants include:

  1. Students from osteopathic medical schools
  2. Students from non-U.S. medical schools
  3. Applicants who have been in the military service and are returning for residency training
  4. Residents who want to transfer in from another specialty training program.
