CAF = Common Application Form
It refers to the fact that your CV (education, contact info, experience, ..etc) is common for all the programs that you apply for. Unlike the Personal statement and the LoRs which can vary from program to program.

It's an old name. ERAS no longer call it CAF, it's just called "profile" now.
