Hello everyone.

Can I have one CV for Psychiatry and another CV for family medicine in ERAS for residency applications?

Thanks in advance.

By CV, do you mean the ERAS application itself? You can have multiple personal statements but there's only one application form itself where you input all your work, school and volunteer experience.

No. There is one application only. You can upload more than one LoR and choose which LoRs you want to send to which program.
This is the reason why I always encourage people who ask me for advice to only focus on one speciality. Because there is just one application, Its easy to give away hints in your application that you are applying to more than one speciality.

When the PD's assistant begins reviewing ERAS applications, they're looking at your LORs and the personal statement more than anything else because ERAS filters out applications that are not qualified for submission.

The last thing they want to read is any hint of being indecisive as to what specialty you want to match into. Those applications are simply ignored and not considered.

Your LORs should be specific to your specialty because who better to judge the character and skills of the individual than another physician who has actually worked with you. Then comes your personal statement. If you have problems communicating fluently in English, get some help in your writing. Have more than one writting professional read/review your personal statement.

The first paragraph should be very strong as to why you should be considered over the thousands of other applicants. Don't be cocky, be confident. You have to be passionate in your writing so they feel that you want to be there, rather than just throwing a dart in the dark and hoping to hit something.

But as I've said before, you need to get yourself known to the PD or his/her staff. If you can do that, you've aleady set your application aside from all others. The deck is stacked against you - you need to work that much harder to land a residency.
