Application Information

Apply to the orthopedic surgery's residency program at the KU School of Medicine.

The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at the University of Kansas School of Medicine accepts four new residents each year through the National Resident Matching Program. Applicants must graduate from a LCME-accredited medical school in the United States or Canada and be able to obtain Kansas and Missouri medical licenses.

Approximately 800 applications are received each year and of those 60 are invited for interviews. Interviews are usually scheduled for a Saturday in November, December and January. During interviews the applicants have the opportunity to meet with most, if not all, of the faculty and residents and take a tour of the facilities. Interviewees are ranked on the basis of their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills and personal demeanor.

Following interviews, the faculty meets to prepare a rank list in preparation for the final rank list submission. The final NRMP match results are then available in March.
