How to Apply
Orthopaedic surgery residency positions continue to be very competitive. In 2018, we received more than 750 completed applications and interviewed 66 candidates to fill five positions. 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. The deadline for applications is October 1, 2019. We do not require any additional forms, but the application must contain:
- At least three letters of recommendation
- USLME scores
- Dean's letter
- Personal statement
Faculty from each of the teaching hospitals affiliated with our program and our current residents participate in interview days.
Interviews for the 2020 Match will be held on Friday, December 6, 2019 and Saturday, December 7, 2019. There is a reception held the evening before each interview: Thursday evening for candidates interviewing on Friday and Friday evening for those interviewing on Saturday. Each day of interviews begins with registration at 7:30 a.m. and will be complete by 3:30 p.m.
