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.

There are 1-2 first year resident positions per year. A year of clinical internship is required before beginning nuclear medicine residency. We interview candidates for a position that starts in July of the next calendar year. Thus, candidates who are currently in a preliminary year internship are also encouraged to apply.

All graduates of foreign medical schools must have passed Parts 1 and 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) prior to application.

This program is receiving approximately 30-40 applications per slot available in any year. Approximately 15 percent 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 around the first of November. Applications must be complete with all documents except the dean's letter for medical students 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. It is understood that the dean's letter for medical students will be forthcoming in November.
