We Participate in ERAS Application
Interview and Selection Procedure
- Interviews are in conjunction with the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program
- Invitations to interview are sent through the ERAS post office by email to the applicant’s email address as indicated on the ERAS application.
- Applicants who will not be offered an interview will be notified by email through the ERAS post office email system.
- In exceptional cases where inability to interview and visit on one of the listed residency interview dates is a hardship, arrangements for an interview at other times may be arranged by contacting the Residency Program Coordinator. Under these circumstances, you may be assured that this will not compromise your chances of selection.
- We will be unable to interview applicants who appear without making previous arrangements
- Applications to the Fellowship Program will only be accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). We participate in the National Residency/Fellowship Matching Program, and do not accept applicants outside of the match.
