How to Apply

Application and Interview Information
Orthopaedic surgery residency positions continue to be very competitive. In 2015, we had over 740 completed applications reviewed by a Selection Committee and interviewed 68 candidates. Applicants are encouraged to do a rotation at our institution.

We participate in the National Match through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) and currently fill five spots per year. We do not require any additional forms, however, the application must contain at least three letters of recommendation, USLME scores, a Dean's letter, personal statement, and transcript. The deadline for applications is October 14, 2016.

Faculty from each of the teaching hospitals participate in the interview days, as well as all of the residents. Interviews for the 2017 Match will be held on Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3, 2016. There is a reception held on Thursday evening for those interviewing on Friday and another reception held on Friday evening for Saturday candidates. Each day begins with registration at 7:30 a.m. and the day ends by 3:30 p.m.
