Application Process - Diagnostic Radiology Residency
All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service [ERAS]. Information regarding this process can be obtained from the deans’ offices of all United States medical schools or from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates. Applications are accepted from both senior medical students and graduates of approved medical schools with house officer training.
Nine first-year resident positions are available per year, and all are filled through the National Residency Matching Program. A year of clinical internship is required before beginning radiology residency.
All graduates of foreign medical schools must have passed Parts 1 and 2 of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) prior to application.
This program receives approximately 60–70 applications per position available in any year. Approximately 20% of those with completed applications are interviewed. There is no quota for accepting University of Maryland students. The department does not regard sex, religion, or racial background as relevant factors when considering applicants for residency positions.
Interviews are scheduled beginning mid-October. Applications must be complete with all documents by October 15. A complete application includes the ERAS application, numerical USMLE scores, curriculum vitae, personal statement, dean's letter, official transcript, and three letters of recommendation.
