The University of Kansas Medical Center is an equal opportunity/ affirmative action employer. Applications are sought from all qualified people regardless of race, religion, color, sex, disability, veteran status, national origin, age, or ancestry.

A complete ERAS application includes:

  • photograph
  • copy of all USMLE scores available (must have Step 3
  • at least two letters of recommendation (letters may be emailed/faxed) 

Please also email a medical school diploma to vif@kumc.edu, since ERAS does not have a place to upload it.
