Register for Match Services

SidewalkThe first step to applying to residency programs is to register for application services and match services that apply to you.

ERAS Registration

Before you apply to programs using ERAS, you first have to register. In order to do this, you must receive an electronic token from the Office of Student Programs & Professional Development.

“Tokens” are electronic codes that allow you to register and access MyERAS (your personal workstation in ERAS) online. Tokens will be will be emailed to you in mid-April. This number will be used one time only to access the ERAS application, at which time the AAMC ID Number will be assigned. Once you obtain your token from our office, you should go to the MyERAS website and click on "register." After registering, you will be assigned an AAMC ID Number. We strongly recommend that you place the number in a safe place, as you will need it several times during the course of this process.

If you have not received a token by April 15, please email the following information to Allison.Matricaria@northwestern.edu:

  • Full name
  • Year of graduation
  • Date of birth
  • Email address that you intend to use during the residency/match process
