Application Process

Radiology Resident Group Photo July 2021
The Radiology Department participates in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP). We accept applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Therefore, you will need to apply through your medical school or through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

In general, you will need to supply the following items:

  • Medical School transcript
  • MSPE/Dean's letter
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation
  • USMLE scores / COMLEX scores
  • Personal statement
  • Photograph (optional)

We accept applications from September 15 until October 31.

All residents must have completed a preliminary year of training in a US-accredited program prior to entering our residency. The Diagnostic Radiology residency does not include an integrated internship year. There are a number of clinical programs in the Cincinnati area in Internal Medicine and Surgery.

Preliminary programs in internal medicine are available at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in addition to The Christ Hospital, Jewish Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital. Preliminary programs in general surgery are available at Jewish Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital.

International Medical Graduates

International Medical Graduates (IMG) interested in applying to our program must apply through ERAS. We do not accept paper or email applications. The University of Cincinnati Medical Center sponsors J-1 visas only.

Individuals must have graduated from medical school within the past five years and completed one year of preliminary training in a US-accredited program recognized by the American Board of Radiology (ABR).

IMGs must possess a valid ECFMG certificate which requires passing all components of the USMLE exam as well as other examinations as required by the ECFMG. The ECFMG certificate must be valid at the start of residency or the resident forfeits his/her position in the program.

In addition to the documents listed above, IMGs must also include in their application:

  • Verification of ECFMG certification and photocopies of all exam results
  • Copy of medical diploma (translation required)
  • Medical School transcript
  • Copies of certification of previous GME experience (translation required)
  • Letter from residency program director verifying completion of one year of training in a US-accredited program. Letters of recommendation must have been written within the previous six months.

Osteopathic Graduates

The Department of Radiology does accept DO graduates into the program. USMLE testing is highly recommended; however, COMLEX scores are accepted. Average COMLEX Level 1 scores for selected candidates range between 600 and 725.


Successful completion of USMLE Step 1 is required for application. Applications are reviewed in their entirety with no minimum score requirement; however, typical Step 1 USMLE scores for selected candidates range between 220 and 260. Passing scores on all components, including Clinical Skills, is required prior to the start of residency.

Successful completion of USMLE/COMLEX Step 3 is required prior to the start of the PGY-3 year.


Candidates selected for a personal interview will be notified through ERAS. We typically invite approximately 100 candidates for interviews.

Our interview season is from October through January.

We generally interview eight to ten candidates per interview day which gives us the opportunity to get to know you as best we can and to allow you to assess our program in a detailed way. Ample time is allowed to speak with our residents about their experiences in our program.

Applicants will be invited to attend a dinner hosted by our residents the evening prior to their interview. Attendance is not required; however, it does provide an opportunity for applicants to interact with residents in an informal environment.
