Application Procedure

Thank you for interest in applying to the Emory University Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program. Our applicants come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We seek candidates who have diversity in both their academic and personal experiences. For this application year, we will have 14 entry-level (R1) Diagnostic Radiology Resident positions available.

Applications for the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program (usually PGY-2 through PGY-5) must be made through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We fill our Diagnostic Radiology Residency positions through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

  2. Three letters of recommendation
  3. Medical school transcript

All application materials must be received by November 15; materials received after that date may not be considered. Our receipt of the medical school transcript and all other application materials, with the exception of the Dean's letter, by October 1 may facilitate early screening of your application for interview.
