Orthopaedic Surgery Interview Day

Interview day overview

Candidates will be e-mailed a schedule for their interview day, 3 days prior to their selected interview day.

We will be using the platform, WebEx. If you are unfamiliar with this platform, please check out the company’s website.

We use our corporate account, and your invitations should work seamlessly. We suggest using Chrome for it over Internet Explorer.

This is our first year conducting interviews via video-conferencing. We apologize in advance for any minor snafus that may occur. While we are well versed in providing tele-care for 20 years, interviews are an entire new ballpark for us but we look so forward to it, as well as meeting you!

Contact information

With any difficulties in logging into WebEx, please feel free to contact our Residency Program Coordinator, Penny Atherton at 603-653-6014 or penny.a.atherton@hitchcock.org. We hope to make this day as smooth as possible for you so please do not hesitate to reach out with login difficulties or any questions whatsoever.


We are so sorry we are unable to welcome you personally and give you a tour of the hospital. We hope this little video gives you a taste of what the area has to offer!

The Upper Valley is a wonderful place to raise a family, explore the outdoors, further education (Dartmouth College, River Valley Community College, Community College of Vermont, The Center for Cartoon Studies, and more), a wonderful hub for technological businesses (Fuji Dimatix, TomTom, Hypertherm, Google, and more), and is rich in history and the arts.

Please check out this brochure (PDF) we have created to give you just a snapshot of what the area has to offer. This is by no means everything that the Upper Valley has to offer. We have everything from ski resorts and amazing panoramic views at the top of hiking trails, to some of the most amazing craft beer, cheeses, and dining experiences, to hidden gems of galleries, shops, and more! Enjoy!

Policies and agreement

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires that each applicant to an accredited residency program be provided with the institutional policies regarding eligibility requirements and selection process along with a sample copy of the current residents and fellows agreement of appointment in force during interview season. Additionally, it is a requirement of the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Review Committee of the ACGME that programs notify applicants in writing of the pre-requisite training requirements as outlined by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Orthopaedic Surgery RRC.

Please familiarize yourself with each of the pages and documents linked below. Prior to the start of your interview day, you will be asked to sign off indicating you received a copy of these policies and documents. We will have additional copies on hand during interview day, as your signature is a requirement to be eligible for ranking.
