All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service [ERAS]. Information regarding this process may be obtained from the Dean’s Offices of all United States medical schools or from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates [ECFMG]. Applications are accepted from both senior medical students and graduates of approved medical schools with house officer training.

Scheduling of interviews begins at the end of October. Applications must be complete with all required documents by the October 31st deadline.

Two (2) first-year resident positions are available each year and are filled exclusively through the National Residency Matching Program [NRMP]. 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) or equivalent 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 gender, religion, or racial background as relevant factors when considering applicants for residency positions.

A complete application includes:

  • ERAS Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Official Medical School Transcript
  • Dean’s Letter
  • USMLE (or equivalent) scores
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation
