Extract

In 2013, 1038 applicants, 833 of whom were U.S. graduates, applied for 693 orthopaedic residency spots. Orthopaedic residency program directors thoroughly screen applicant data, selecting those applicants who will be most successful during the residency. Although the most important consideration for program directors is choosing residents who will obtain competence and will pass the orthopaedic board examinations, many applicants are chosen also for their ability to contribute to the field through leadership, research, and teaching.
