How to Apply
Applications for residency are accepted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) only. Please refer to ERAS or the contact person at your school to learn more about applying for residency.
ERAS is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and transmits residency applications, letters of recommendation, deans' letters, transcripts and other supporting credentials from medical schools to residency program directors. We do not require any documents in addition to ERAS requirements. The Department of Radiology participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Please keep in mind appropriate deadlines. It is strongly encouraged to open an ERAS account as soon as possible and complete your application by the first of October.
On the interview day, applicants will have the opportunity to talk with current residents, interview with our faculty members, tour the institution and enjoy lunch with a few of the residents at a local restaurant.
