Residency Application – How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Summa Health System’s Orthopaedic Surgery program. Residency applications and additional items listed below must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  The Department of Orthopaedics participates in the National Resident Matching Program where four residents will be selected for our five year program accredited by ACGME.  For the 22-23 season, we will be participating in signaling and the supplemental ERAS application and we will only be recruiting for 3 spots instead of 4.

  • ERAS Common Application Form with your CV
  • Personal Statement  
  • Minimum 3 letters of recommendation -standardized form preferred but not required. 
  • Dean’s Letter and/or MSPE
  • Medical School Academic Transcript 
  • USMLE transcript (Step I and/or Step II) –preferred Step II completed but not required. A passing Step II score will be required in the 23-24 season and beyond. 
  • International applications-we will only consider a J1 Visa-no exceptions
We interview approximately 35 candidates throughout the season starting in December and ending in January.  All interviews will be virtual. If you'd be interested in participating in an open house prior to interviews to get to know our residents and residency program, please contact Melissa Wheeler
