How to Apply for a Cleveland Clinic Fellowship Position in Endocrinology:
What is ERAS®?
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) developed ERAS - The Electronic Residency Application Service, to transmit residency applications, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from applicants and ERAS Fellowships Document Office (EFDO) to fellowship program directors using the Internet.
How does ERAS Fellowships work?
The ERAS solution is made up of three components:
- The applicant website MyERAS
- The Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS) used by EFDO
- The Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS)
- Using a web browser, applicants complete an application, select programs, and create and assign supporting documents using a secure site.
- Applicants submit these files to ERAS for processing.
- The ERAS Fellowships Document Office (EFDO) staff uses the DWS to scan and store the applicant’s medical school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and photograph to transmit these files to the ERAS Post Office.
- Cleveland Clinic will connect to the ERAS Post Office and download applications using the Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS).
How much does ERAS cost?
ERAS processing fees are based on the number of programs an applicant selects, and can be found on the ERAS website.

When can an applicant get started?
ERAS instructions and your electronic token or accesskey to MyERAS website will be distributed by the EFDO beginning in June 2013.
What will the EFDO do?
The EFDO establishes the processing procedures for ERAS fellowships and the schedule for distributing MyERAS information. EFDO will also process supporting application documents, which includes scanning transcripts, attaching documents, processing letters of recommendation, sending files to selected programs via the ERAS Post Office, etc.
