Radiology is one of the most competitive specialties for residency training. Penn Medicine offers comprehensive radiology training in an engaging and nurturing environment, despite being a large academic medical institution.
Applications to our training program are made through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System). The deadline for receiving your completed application through ERAS is October 15, 2019. We require completion of one year of ACGME-accredited clinical training prior to beginning radiology residency training. You should apply for these internships, typically done in internal medicine, surgery or as a transitional year, independently through ERAS.
Candidates for residencies are considered during their fourth year of medical school and, and less often during or after their internship. Our positions are filled through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).
The Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania does not discriminate based on age, race, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation. There is no cutoff based on a candidate's age, USMLE scores, or date of graduation from medical school. We have current residents who have trained both in the United States and internationally. We support residents with either an H1-B or J1 visa.
All applicants must meet the requirements to obtain a Pennsylvania Medical Training License to enter our ACGME accredited program.
