Several online resources are available for you as you prepare for residency. A centralized application site catalogues information; a database of thousands of residency and graduate medical education programs can help you locate speciality options; and an indepdant website collects your choices and matches you to a residency program.
One of the first steps toward residency is to submit your application to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) - the centralized site for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
It transmits applications, letter of recommendation and transcripts to your residencies of choice.
National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) is the website which processes residency matches. It is an independant service which rank-orders student and program director choices. Decisions are announced the third Friday in March.
