Interviews will be offered between May 1 and September 15 as completed application materials are received.
After the material is reviewed, we will contact selected residents for an interview. During your visit, you will be asked to do a 20-minute presentation on a musculoskeletal topic of your choice. To accommodate the high volume of qualified residents, our interviews usually last two days. We do not anticipate offering positions to anyone who has not spent a minimum of two days touring the OSS Health facilities.
Once interview times are filled, we will be unable to invite additional applicants despite the strength of their application. Therefore, we encourage you to expedite your materials.
Elective rotations are permitted from October 1 through April 30. We prefer not to have rotations while people are here in the interview process.
We are not offering ACGME accredited positions. We are a member of the NASS Interventional Spine Fellowship Consortium and will be abiding by the September, 2018 Common Offer Date.
