Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS): Our program is listed under Preventive Medicine residencies. ERAS permits applicants to compile their application materials in a central secure web location such that each of their selected training programs can access the documents directly. There is a fee to applicants for this service. For more general information about ERAS visit:

All applicants to the program who do not already possess an MPH must also complete a separate application to the UC Berkeley School of Public Health MPH (or MS) degree program. The deadline for this application is typically early December.
