How to Apply

Application deadline

October 1

Application format

We accept applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We do not accept any paper applications.

Interview dates

Our interview season occurs in December and January. A personal interview is a required part of the application process. Applicants are encouraged to join the residents/fellows for dinner the evening prior to their interview day. During the interview visit, applicants will have the opportunity to meet with residents/fellows, faculty, and the program director.

Position availability

We have four categorical 5-year positions available every year. The residencies start on June 26.

Application requirements

Your ERAS application should include:

  • CV (the ERAS-generated CV is acceptable)
  • Personal statement
  • Transcripts
  • Dean's letter
  • At least three letters of recommendation
  • USMLE scores (successful completion of Part I and Part II is required for NH licensure)
  • Photograph

Each year we receive approximately 600 applications, and begin sending out interview invitations just prior to Thanksgiving.  We continue to send out invitations on a rolling basis throughout the interview season.

Dartmouth Orthopaedics participates in the National Residency Matching Program.
