Question ERAS Photograph

Hi friends,

I have a question regarding the photograph we need to upload for ERAS.
Should we have a professional look? or any casual dress is fine? I am a female and would like to know if we should be having a formal appearance?
Let me know guys.

Thanks .

Default Yes. It's should be professional

Yes. Definitely, you should have a professional look with professional dress. This photograph is going to be your official photo in ERAS records and will be seen by all residency programs you will apply to.

Other important information as follows;

  • It must be in the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format.
  • It must have a resolution of 300 pixels wide by 300 pixels high or 240 pixels wide by 320 pixels high, and a color depth of 24-bit color.
  • The source of the digital photograph should be either a digital camera or a print photograph scanned into a digital format.
