Applications must be received by October 31 so that their composite score will reflect their application and provide the best chance to obtain an interview. Invitations will be sent by ERAS E-mail and reservations given for specific interview days on a first-come/first-serve basis. Please make sure you can attend on the day you request. UMKC Orthopaedic Residency participates in Universal Offer Day (November 15th, 2021 at 12pm EST) and Universal Interview Acceptance Period (beginning November 17th, 2021 at 12pm EST – November 18th, 2021 12pm EST).
The interview provides the prospective resident an opportunity to see the program, talk with the residents and decide if this program is a good personal match. Each interviewee will be provided complete information about the program, teaching and faculty/resident interactions. We believe that this process allows the applicant to “self-select” and therefore results in matching candidates who work very well as a group.
Interviews are scheduled for December 12th, 2021, January 5th, 2022 and January 19, 2022 at 8:00am CST. There will be a short introduction by the Residency Program Director, Dr. Amelia Sorensen, followed by 10-minute interviews with several faculty members and senior residents. All candidates will have interviews with the same faculty members, regardless of the particular day they select to interview.
Interviews will occur in a split group format. While half of the applicants interview, the other half will attend a virtual tour of our facilities as well as a group discussion with current residents.
All costs related to the interview will be the responsibility of the applicant.
