ERAS for Fellowship Applicants

ERAS is a service of the Association of American Medical Colleges and was created in 1995 to enhance transition to fellowship by reducing the amount of time spent on the application process. ERAS electronically transmits a standardized application, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from applicants and designated dean's offices to program directors.

All applications will be reviewed and considered by Dr. Antonio Cabrera, fellowship program director, only after the ERAS application has been finalized by the applicant and forwarded to BCM Pediatric Cardiology by ERAS.
