Applicants must have a medical degree from an approved institution and one year of postgraduate clinical training prior to beginning the radiology residency. Those candidates who have graduated from medical school outside the United States must have passed the ECFMG. As a participant in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), all candidates should review the specific requirements for independent applicants as set forth in section 3.0 of Policies of the NRMP. Our program's official NRMP code is 114762 and the number of positions offered is five (5). We accept applications via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) of the American Association of Medical Colleges. United States medical students should contact their dean's office for further information.
Because of the large number of applicants, personal interviews with every applicant are not possible. Upon receipt of the complete application package (dean's letter, medical school transcript, United States Medical Licensing Examination scores and three letters of recommendation), the resident selection committee will determine if an interview would be mutually beneficial. Residents are selected for a personal interview based on academic record, achievements and letters of recommendation. Race, sex, religion and national origin are not considerations.
We seek to recruit individuals who are enthusiastic and hard working, and who possess a sound fund of basic science and clinical knowledge. Our residents are a major asset to the department, and we take pride in their training and education. Our graduates have performed successfully on the written and oral examinations of the American Board of Radiology. For years, they have obtained desirable academic appointments and/or private practice opportunities throughout the country.
In summary, we feel that the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Rush is second to none in Chicago and one of the best programs in the country. We are proud of our residents and consider them friends and colleagues to be nurtured and guided. We foster a warm, friendly environment where individuals can achieve maximal personal performance.
