Instructions and Information for Applicants to Our Residency Program
Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS): We use ERAS for the NRMP match process. An Applicant Information Sheet is available to explain how it works by accessing the Internet at www.aamc.org/eras.
We require the following documents, most of which can be transmitted to us by ERAS after you supply them to your Dean's Office:
9. Medical School Transcript: If you have already graduated from medical school, your transcript should include the entire fourth year.
10. Recommendation Letters: A letter from orthopedic faculty with whom you have worked at your school will carry the most weight and is recommended. Following that, in descending order of preference, letters from other orthopedic faculty, other medical school faculty, practicing orthopedic surgeons, and other physicians who are familiar with you.
11. USMLE Transcript: We require a complete and official transcript from NBME, which you must request.
Additional Information: We receive approximately 400 - 500 completed applications through ERAS each year. Our Screening Committee reviews these applications and approximately 60 applicants are invited to interview on 3 selected days in late December and/or early January. Most applicants invited to interview are well-rounded individuals who are in the upper one-third of their class and have high board scores. Many are members of AOA and Gold Humanism Society. We typically do not contact applicants about documents missing in their files. Any file that is not complete by the deadline will not be reviewed in the screening process.
In addition to the documents listed above, we encourage all applicants to submit a separate OU Letter of Interest (see below). This allows our team of reviewers to evaluate your interest in our program and in living in Oklahoma. While your application will be considered complete without this submission, the information provided is very valuable to the review process.
Calls and questions may be directed to Alexandra Watson or Janet Moore, Residency Program Coordinators, at 405-271-5964 or 271-4426 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
