Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Johns Hopkins Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program. Graduation from an accredited medical school is the first prerequisite for acceptance into the program. All applications are reviewed and interviews for prospective candidates are arranged on the basis of medical school record, research experience, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation. Competition is exceptionally high, with many more outstanding applicants than openings each year.

Step 1: Apply Through ERAS

  • Sign into the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to apply
  • Required documentation includes:
    • Board scores

Dean's letters and transcripts will be the only documentation accepted after the deadline. Applications and documentation are accepted only through the ERAS system.

Step 2: Interview

In-person interviews are required. Interview dates TBA.

Applicants will be informed of interviews via ERAS email. Applicants not chosen for interviews will also be contacted by ERAS email.
