We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accept five residents per year.
Satisfactory completion of part 1 of the boards depends on being able to compete on the cognitive level with their peers in the orthopaedic surgery residency. This screening process reduces the number of applicants to approximately 150. The ERAS applications are then reviewed by each of the five physicians on the selection committee.
Each committee member individually reviews the ERAS applications for what they feel are important characteristics. This can include:
- USMLE scores
- Class ranking
- AOA status
- Dean’s letter
- Letters of recommendation
- Personal statements
- Rotation grades, if available
Research and volunteer work are also evaluated. Approximately 50 students will be selected for interview.
