Applications for residency should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Each year, we fill 7 diagnostic radiology residency positions and 2 integrated interventional radiology positions. Candidates matching with these positions will begin their radiology residency training on July 1, 2022. This will allow time for the required one year of clinical experience (prelim year) from July 2021 through June 2022. The initial clinical year must be spent in an ACGME-accredited institution.

Applications are due by October 21, 2020. Completed ERAS applications will be reviewed by members of the Resident Selection and Review Committee. All interviews are extended through the program's Resident Selection and Review Committee via ERAS. If selected for an interview, our office will contact you to arrange an interview one of our scheduled interview dates. Interview invitations are sent out in by beginning of November. All interviews will be conducted virtually and more information will be shared when you receive your invitation to interview.

Both the Diagnostic Radiology Residency and the Integrated Radiology Residency programs hold interviews on the same day.

Make sure your ERAS application contains the following items:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • USMLE Step scores
  • Three to Four Letters of Recommendation
  • Dean's Letter (MRSP)
  • Medical School Transcript
