Residency Program



The Saint Louis University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery participates in the AAMC Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We will only be accepting applications through ERAS. Please contact your medical school for the student work station kit. Our program offers five PGY-1 categorical slots.

General Program Description:

Berton R. Moed, M.D. is Chairman and Jasmin McGinty, M.D, Program Director. The Residency Program is a six-year, fully accredited program, consisting of five years of clinical instruction and one year of research, which provides training in all areas of adult and pediatric orthopaedics. There are 30 residents in the program, five at each PGY year and five in the research year, which is positioned between the PGY-1 and PGY-2 years. The PGY-1 year is an orthopaedic year which meets all current ACGME and ABOS requirements, providing an excellent background in general surgery and the surgery subspecialties. The research year is an organized program in research education supported through the Saint Louis University School of Medicine in conjunction with the Department of Biomedical Engineering. This year is dedicated mainly to research, but is structured in such a way as to maintain the residents’ newly acquired clinical skills. The PGY-2 through PGY-5 years are spent solely within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, during which time residents rotate through all the major subspecialties. As the years in training increase, so does the level of resident responsibility, culminating in a PGY-5 or Chief Resident year. Upon successful completion of the program, residents are eligible for Board certification through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
