How to Apply for Residency

Radiology residency applications should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

It is strongly recommended that you complete your application by November 15 for training to begin the July after completion of a preliminary year of training. In addition to the application form, our requirements include:

  • Brief personal statement
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Medical school transcript
  • Dean's letter
  • Three letters of recommendation from physicians who have knowledge of your clinical experience

All positions begin July 1, and interviews are conducted each year from November through January.

The Resident Selection Committee evaluates applications upon completion, and approximately 120 applicants are invited to interview. The Department acknowledges every completed application.

Residency Interviews

Residency interviews are conducted on weekdays and include:

  • Pre-interview dinner
  • 20-minute interviews with three or four faculty members
  • Department tour
  • Lunch with residents currently in the program

All positions are filled through the Match unless special circumstances apply. Our National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) program code is 2835420C0 for positions to commence the July after completion of a preliminary year of training.

International Medical Graduates

International medical graduate applications should be submitted through the Dean's office at your medical school or through Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). UT Southwestern sponsors only J1 visas for physicians in training. H1b visas are not sponsored, nor can they be transferred from another institution. There is no minimum United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) score.
