Diagnostic Radiology Application Process

The University of Chicago, Department of Radiology accepts six residents per year. All positions are filled through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) utilizing the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). For information, please visit their websites at aamc.org/eras and www.nrmp.org.

Required Application Materials:

  • Complete ERAS application
  • MSPE (formerly Dean’s Letter)
  • Transcripts
  • USMLE Step 1 Scores – we do not require USLME Step II scores be available by October 1st, but passages of both USLME Step 1 and II are required for entry into the program.
  •  Personal Statement
  •  Curriculum Vitae
  • A minimum of 3 Letters of your choice
  • J1 visas accepted/sponsored

All applicants must complete all pre-requisite training in an ACGME-accredited internship or residency program before entering or transferring into an ACGME-accredited residency/fellowship program. This includes  residents entering into a PGY2 level specialty. 

We will begin accepting applications in September 2020 for PGY2 positions to begin in July 2022. Interviews will be held in October, November, and December 2020. Check out our program details on FREIDA. 

We review all applications and invite candidates to interview as the review process proceeds.  If you have applied for radiology residency through ERAS, you will be notified by e-mail if an invitation to interview will be issued.  The timing of your interview does not affect your chances of obtaining a position in our residency program.  Once you have received an invitation to interview, please respond as promptly as possible. ZOOM interviews are conducted on Wednesday’s and Friday’s. All applicants are invited to an informal dinner the night before the interview with our residents. 

While there is not a strict deadline, applicants are encouraged to submit all materials promptly as invitations are offered continuously.
