ERAS 2023 Token: (#)

University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences”

As a third-year medical student, you can register your ERAS token now. This will be the only token you receive for ERAS (ERAS 2022 season) whether you register it now or next year. You will not be able to start your ERAS application until June 2022.

The benefit of registering your ERAS token now is that you will have the ability to request a letter of recommendation through the LOR portal. You can send a link to your letter writers so that they can upload the letters directly into ERAS.

Get to know your preceptors since they will write your letters of recommendation. Think about this when you are on rotation–

  • It is easier to ask for letters of recommendation while on the clerkship.
  • Give your potential letter writer a CV and a personal statement at the time that you ask.
  • Make sure to ask if they feel that they can write you a good letter of recommendation.
  • You cannot see your letters of recommendation; it is against the rules and could lead to sanctions.

Be sure to read your summative comments for each clerkship as you complete them. If you don’t agree with the comments, talk with your preceptor to get it changed now. These are the comments that will be used in your Dean’s letters and it’s easier to change now when it’s fresh in the preceptor’s minds. Dr. Porter cannot change or delete any of the summative comments that are in your final evaluations.
