Every year, we review more than 800 applications to find four passionate and promising candidates to begin the transformation from medical school graduate to orthopaedic surgeon. The orthopaedic surgery residency program at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University matches residents through the National Resident Matching Program.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our department has established a DEI committee consisting of three diverse faculty members. The goal is to increase diversity in our house staff group with regard to race, gender, and ethnicity.

The department currently has a diverse faculty who are involved in the faculty recruitment process. We ensure the interview team is diverse and are aware of implicit biases.

Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program Application

Please submit your application through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) by October 1st.  Our orthopaedic residency program selection committee will only consider complete applications that include:

  • A personal statement
  • Three letters of recommendation: We accept the AOA/CORD Standardized Letter of Recommendation.
  • A Dean’s letter
  • Your medical school transcript
  • Your United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 and Step 2 Score Reports


After reviewing applications, we invite a select number of candidates for interviews.  In person iterviews are conducted at the Medical College of Georgia between November and January.  Our program participates in the NRNP signaling process as well as the universal interview offer date.
