Residency Application Process

All applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). In order to be complete, your application packet must include the ERAS common application form, personal statement, 3 letters of recommendation (but the program will accept 4), United States Medical Licensure Exam (USMLE) scores and your medical school transcript.

The deadline for 2015 Match application materials is October 15, 2014. Deans' letters are expected by November 1, 2014.

The Wake Forest University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery residency program strictly adheres to the application deadlines. 

Interviews will be granted by invitation only.

Invitations to interview at Wake Forest University's Orthopaedic Surgery residency program are made on a rolling basis. All candidates who have submitted applications will receive either an invitation or regret letter no later than the first week of November. Both will be sent to the email address you provided on your ERAS application.
