Application Information

We accept applications for the residency program only through ERAS.  You must work through your medical school dean’s office for processing on ERAS, even if you are not a recent graduate.  If you are a foreign medical school graduate, please refer to the ECFMG website.

The following items should be transmitted through ERAS:

  • A complete ERAS application
  • USMLE results for both Step 1 and Step 2
  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation.  (We do not specifically require a Chair's letter.)
  • Medical school transcript
  • Dean’s letter (MSPE)
  • Personal Statement

Please note changes to ERAS for the 2023 application cycle: Most orthopaedic surgery programs, including ours, will likely participate in the Supplemental ERAS application and Preference Signaling, which have a deadline of September 16th.

In a typical year, we review over 1000 completed applications and select approximately 75 applicants for interviews.  We typically rank all of the students we interview.  We also rank, but do not formally interview, all students who do rotations, which include the visiting students as well as the GW students.  The rotation takes the place of a formal interview.
