Diagnostic Residency Application

The University of Chicago, Department of Radiology accepts eight 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

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 2017 for advanced positions to begin in July 2019. Interviews will be held in October, November, and December 2017.

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. Interviews are conducted on Wednesday’s and Friday’s. All applicants are invited to an informal dinner the night before the interview. 

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

If you have not heard from us, and you have been offered an interview with another institution in Chicago, contact our Residency Program Manager.  We will try to help you coordinate your visits.

Tips

Taking a cab? Your driver may be more familiar with the name "Bernard Mitchell Hospital" than with the University of Chicago.

The entrance to the Q-corridor on the second floor is directly opposite of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in the P corridor.

If you're not staying overnight, bring your luggage with you.  We will find a place for it until your interviews are completed.
