Simple math: ERAS fees, travel, NRMP fees. You can calculate ERAS fees using a handy calculator: https://www.residencyplace.com/ErasCalcPage.aspx . You should budget $600.00 per interview. It will cost less if you combine your trips. You should not however select interview dates just because you want to combine the trips. See next question for details. For example if you are applying to 70 programs in IM and 70 in FM, your ERAS fees are $2,580.00. Assuming you got 7 interviews, one of them in your city and 2 combined, add $3,600.00. Total - $6,180.00
