Applying to Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Training Program

Residents are selected for appointment at the PGY1 level through the National Resident Matching Program. Resident applications are submitted through the ERAS Program. Necessary information required of all applicants for consideration in the selection process include United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores, a Dean’s letter and three letters of recommendation.

Selection of an applicant is based on their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. Interviews take place the second weekend of January (Friday/Saturday). We encourage applicants to apply by November 1st.

The Harbor-UCLA Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Training Program is proud of the diversity of backgrounds of its resident complement—reflective of the national diversity, and in particular, the “melting pot” composition of California.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status.
