The audition season runs from June through December.*
* Due to COVID-19, our adjusted audition season will start on July 6, 2020, and end on January 29, 2021.
* As of August 24, 2020, our calendar is full for in-person rotation requests.
* As of November 10, 2020, we are no longer accepting applications for virtual auditions.
For PCOM medical students interested in setting up audition rotations, the season will start July 6, 2020.
Per the recommendation of the American Orthopedic Association / Council of Orthopaedic Residency Directors (AOA/CORD): Provide adequate exposure to orthopaedic surgery and advocate for at least 2 months of orthopaedic surgery for students at their home program. Therefore, when submitting your application, please give us two different time slots that will work with your schedule. You don't have to schedule back to back rotations.
For non-PCOM medical students, the season will open tentatively on July 6, 2020, virtually.
In person auditions will be granted if: (1) learners who have a specialty interest and do not have access to a clinical experience with a residency program in that specialty in their school’s system; or (2) students who have a graduation or military requirement to complete such a rotation.
Note: If you fall within the exception category stated above and your medical school is allowing you to complete an in-person audition rotation, the in-person audition rotation will tentatively open in September 2020.
* Due to our adjusted audition season, non-audition season will start March 1, 2021 and end on May 28, 2021. However, at this time, we are only able to accommodate PCOM medical students. Non-audition will only be for two weeks.
