Application Process

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applications are processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Currently open: eight PGY II positions for NRMP match for starting the following year (after clinical year).

Deadline for complete applications through ERAS: November 15, of the current year.  Only completed applications will be reviewed by the Residency Selection Committee of the Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Arizona.

Selected candidates will be contacted for interviews via e-mail starting mid-September of the current year. Interviews are scheduled November through January. The required Preliminary Year (PGY I) positions are independent of our program and candidates must apply for these separately. Available PGY I positions in Tucson are:

If you receive an interview for Radiology, and not for one of the preliminary programs, and are interested in interviewing with one of these programs, please contact Janet Black at janetb@radiology.arizona.edu . Please don’t wait until January.

Our resident candidates must have passed Part I of the National Boards. Our program requires the ERAS application, Dean's Letter, 3 current letters of recommendation, school transcripts, USMLE transcripts and a personal statement. The Dean's Letter should document satisfactory academic and clinical performance, acceptable moral and ethical behavior and humanistic qualities.

Again, applications and supporting documents must be received by November 15, of the current year. Applicants who are invited to interview at our program will meet with the Program Director, and three faculty members on the Residency Selection Committee. The Committee finalizes the match list after reviewing all of the applicants' materials and interview evaluations. The Program does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, age, or any other discriminatory factors.
