Applicants for our Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program must participate in the National Residency Matching Program. We also participate in AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service, called ERAS, to accept and process residency applications. ERAS is a computerized application service which is available to all medical students attending accredited schools in the United States and foreign medical graduates via the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). Medical students interested in applying to our program can request information and brochures from us, but applications and supporting documentation must be submitted directly from the medical schools via the Internet. Someone in your medical school's Dean's Office should be able to counsel you regarding this procedure. Each year we seek three PGY-1 level positions in the Orthopaedic Surgery Program. The NRMP Program Code for these Categorical positions is #1689260C0. Our Program ID # for ERAS is #260-47-11-164.
