We’ll walk you through what you need to wear and how to pose to get a flattering, approachable, and authentic expression that will connect with the residency selection committee members. 

Photo Requirements for ERAS®

Currently, the Electronic Residency Application Service requires the following image specifications:

  • 2.5 x 3.5 inch image
  • Resolution of 150 dpi
  • File size <= 100kb

What You’ll Receive

The image(s) you select for your ERAS® submission will be retouched and provided to you at full resolution as well as in the ERAS required format (a resolution of 150dpi with dimensions of 3.5″ x 2.5″).

You won’t have to worry about compressing the file size yourself for your submission.
