Frequently Asked Questions about the Residency Application Platform for Obstetrics and Gynecology


ACOG, in collaboration with the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics and the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology, recently announced a new dedicated obstetrics and gynecology residency application, to be available starting in the 2024/25 residency application cycle.

This new specialty-specific process for residency application, review and selection will be available for adoption by all obstetrics and gynecology residency programs and applicants in lieu of the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Emerging from ACOG, CREOG, and APGO’s Right Resident, Right Program, Ready Day One initiative, which is funded by the AMA’s Reimagining Residency grant program, this new application platform will improve the ability of obstetrics and gynecology residency programs to evaluate candidates holistically and better ensure that our obstetrics and gynecology trainees are able to meet the needs of the communities for whom they provide care. The new application will be more user friendly and efficient, less expensive for applicants, and will directly decrease the burdens faced by program directors, program managers, and applicants alike.

Below are answers to questions that applicants and residency program staff may have about this new application. ACOG, CREOG, and APGO look forward to incorporating feedback from program directors, program managers, and applicants as they move forward with the building, testing, and implementation of this application.
