Applying for Residency

Residency Program applications for the residency program are annually accepted through October for the incoming residency group who will join us the following July. Residency Program applicants must submit their information via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®), made available through the Association of American Medical Colleges.

All applicants must submit a letter stating why you are interested in our program. Please email your letter of interest to Residency Program Coordinator Joni Roberts. Applicants will be notified of their selection status and related interviews in mid November. Interviews are held each Wednesday in January with social gatherings on preceding Tuesday evenings.

Medical Students

Thank you for your interest in a visiting student rotation with us in the Department of Orthopaedics at UNM. We believe that this is a great opportunity for you to evaluate our program and will allow you to assess how well you will fit in with our team. Visiting Student rotations are a coordinated effort between the Student Affairs offices at UNM and the requesting student's home institution. Information and forms for medical students interested in applying for an elective here at UNM are located on the School of Medicine website.

Be sure to sign up for CLNS 850, General Orthopaedic Surgery Sub-Internship. This rotation will give you the best exposure to our various subspecialties, attendings, and residents.

Applications are screened and rotations granted based on merit and on the order that the application was received. We strive to accommodate requests for specific dates and are generally able to work around differences in the UNM and requesting student's home institution schedules.
