You may choose to supply an updated photograph OR use your white coat photograph. An updated photograph must: measure between 2.5 by 3.5 inches and no more than 3 by 4 inches be in color, not black and white show a full front view of head and shoulders with full-face centered in the middle of the photograph have a plain white or light-colored background (dark-colored backgrounds do not display very well in the program’s software). All of the above requirements also apply to digital photographs.  Save digital photographs in a jpg format. © 2012 University of Utah School of Medicine, Office of Student Affairs

7 ERAS Requirements Letters of Recommendation (LOR)
Provide a LOR Request Form—requires a LetterID—to each author. LOR must be submitted on letterhead and signed by the author. LOR authors may upload their letters into ERAS via the LOR Portal or send their LOR directly to the Dean’s Office for uploading into ERAS. The LOR Request Form will guide the author in using the LOR Portal. Detailed instructions for the LOR Portal will be available at https://www.aamc.org/services/eras/282520/lor_portal.html. If an author uploads a new version of the letter, it will be prepended to the original LOR—recent version first. So, please be aware that programs (and medical schools) will be able to view BOTH versions of the LOR. © 2012 University of Utah School of Medicine, Office of Student Affairs
