Orthopaedic Surgery Applicant Information
Applicants for our Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program must participate in the National Residency Matching Program. We also participate in AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service, called ERAS, to accept and process residency applications. ERAS is a computerized application service which is available to all medical students attending accredited schools in the United States and foreign medical graduates via the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). Medical students interested in applying to our program can request information and brochures from us, but applications and supporting documentation must be submitted directly from the medical schools via the Internet. Someone in your medical school's Dean's Office should be able to counsel you regarding this procedure. Each year we seek three PGY-1 level positions in the Orthopaedic Surgery Program. The NRMP Program Code for these Categorical positions is #1689260C0. Our Program ID # for ERAS is #260-47-11-164.

Erlanger does not provide housing or hotel accommodations for applicants selected for interview in the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program; however, information on special rates available at nearby downtown hotels will be sent with interview invitations.
Note: The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners requires that applicants for license in Tennessee must be graduates either from LCME or AOA accredited schools or from international schools whose admission criteria are comparable to LCME medical schools. The UT College of Medicine Chattanooga and its programs have determined that they will only consider applicants for student rotations or residency/fellowship applications who are from schools who meet these same criteria so they would be eligible for medical license in Tennessee after completing residency.
