LSU orthopaedics participates in the ERAS and NRMP matching program. Our requirements are the same as ERAS. We require three letters of recommendation. One letter should be from the Orthopaedic program at your school. The deadline for applications is November 1. No late applications are accepted.

Invitations for interview are sent after all application materials are reviewed by program director(s). Interviews are held each year between December and January.
