Thank you for your interest in the Medical College of Wisconsin Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program!
This residency program is an ACGME accredited five year residency program which includes the Post-Graduate Year I (PGY-I Internship Year). There are five positions available each year at the PGY-I level. The PGY-I year is planned in accordance with the ACGME program requirements and provides an experience that will prepare the candidate for the PGY-II through PGY-V years of intense orthopaedic training in multiple hospital affiliates of the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Candidates who already have completed their PGY-I training in an accredited program other than orthopaedic surgery will only be considered for our PGY-I year.
The Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program only accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). If you are an international medical graduate, please contact your local ECFMG office for more information about applying to our program through ERAS.
The materials required for a complete application via ERAS are:
- Common Application Form

- Three Standardized Letter of Recommendation Forms (SLOR) with at least one from an orthopaedic surgeon. We will accept a 4th SLOR Form but it is not required

Please do not email or mail additional documents directly to the program. All documents must be uploaded into ERAS.
*Please note* All communications during the application and interview process between the applicant and the Program Director or Coordinator must be made via e-mail only. Therefore, you must have a valid e-mail address listed in your ERAS application.
