In order to request an ERAS token, please email the Residency Advising Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply for fellowships, tokens are requested directly through ERAS at https://www.erasfellowshipdocuments.org/Home/TokenRegistration.
Current students and prior-year graduates applying for residency positions will have their MSPE uploaded by the Residency Advising Team prior to the national upload date.
Prior-year graduates applying for fellowships can request a copy of their MSPE using the MIDUS request process. Instructions on submitting a MIDUS request can be found on the AAMC website. Please direct all MIDUS requests to the Residency Advising Team (contact information below).
Letters of Recommendation
Students have access to the letter of recommendation portal of ERAS starting in year three of their medical education. ERAS regulations prohibit Heritage College staff members from reviewing, uploading or receiving letters of recommendation.
Ordering a Heritage College Transcript
Current students will be notified of the process for ordering their transcript prior to applying.
Prior-year graduates, please note: Our office does not have access to your medical school transcripts. All prior-year graduates must order their own transcript through the Ohio University Registrar.
Prior-year graduates reapplying for residency will need to order a paper copy of their transcript to be sent to the Residency Advising Team's office (contact information below).
Prior-year graduates applying for fellowships will need to order and upload their own transcript in MIDUS. Please do not send our office a MIDUS transcript request. The options for ordering your transcript can be found on the registrar's office site. If you select the registrar's option for an electronic copy of your transcript, the MIDUS system may encounter an error with the document, due to the registrar's encryption on the file. To avoid this issue, we recommend having a paper copy sent to your physical address to minimize technical difficulties. Please be advised that ordering a paper copy may take more time than an electronic copy, so it is important to be mindful of deadlines when you make your choice. If you must order an electronic transcript and are not able to upload to MIDUS, please email the Residency Advising Team for assistance (contact information below).
ERAS applicants must order their COMLEX and USMLE transcripts using the ERAS system.
The MyERAS Application will become available in the summer before your graduation.
All applicants are responsible for uploading a photograph to their ERAS application. Professional photographs or white coat photos are recommended. Our office advises against using cell phone photographs or images downloaded from social media.
