Thumbs Up Yes. It's recommended

Residency programs will usually print out a copy of your personal statement on paper and compile it in a file.
Therefore, when the Program director then comes to read it, he/she may not know to whom it belongs to (as he's not viewing it in ERAS).

Therefore, I recommend you put your name and AAMC ID on the lower right corner of the last page of your personal statement.

You can't " sign" it as you have to write it in ERAS, I mean, you just put your name and # there, that's it.
