When applying for a neurosurgery residency please utililize ERAS.

PGY-1 is now a categorical year of training under the direction of our neurosurgery department. Students do not need to match and interview separtely with General Surgery for the PGY-1 internship year.

ERAS is a service that transmits applications, letters of recommendation (LoRs), Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPEs), medical school transcripts, USMLE transcripts, COMLEX transcripts, and other supporting credentials from you and your designated dean's office to program directors using the Internet. ERAS consists of MyERAS (the Web site where you create your application), the Dean's Office Workstation (DWS), the Program Director's Workstation (PDWS), and the ERAS PostOffice.
