Orthopaedic Residency Program
All applicants must participate in the National Residency Matching Program. Applications are accepted ONLY through AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), which is accessed through the Dean's Office of the student's medical college. This allows equal evaluation of all applicants as well as maintaining a complete online database and using other powerful functions contained in the program. Foreign Medical Graduates may find useful information at the ACGME Website under GMEducation Useful Information / Entry of Foreign-Born Medical Graduates to the United States.
Materials needed for a complete application (to be transmitted through ERAS program):
- Common Application Form (CAF)
- Curriculum Vitae
- Current color photograph
- Personal statement no longer than one typed page
- Medical school transcript
- Dean's Letter
- Minimum three, maximum four, letters of recommendation
- USMLE certified transcript scores
- ECFMG Status Report (foreign medical graduates)
- COMLEX certified transcript scores (osteopaths)
It is the responsibility of the applicant to solicit the letters of recommendation and to see that they are submitted to the appropriate office at their medical college (e.g. student affairs or academic affairs office) for scanning and transmission to our program.
It is mandatory that all application materials (except for the Dean's letter) be received by October 15th. All completed applications are reviewed by committee and a letter of invitation for interview is e-mailed through ERAS to each candidate considered to be competitive. Candidates not invited to interview will also be notified by e-mail through ERAS. The concept of interview by invitation only gives the residency faculty the best opportunity to evaluate competitive candidates in as fair a manner as possible. Further, this policy averts a great deal of unnecessary traveling expenses by candidates who are not considered to be competitive based on their application credentials.
Interviews by invitation are scheduled for December.
