Both residency programs participate in the NRMP Match, and all applicants should upload a completed Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) application for our Residency Review Committee to evaluate.
PGY2 (R1) Diagnostic Radiology residents must have completed their PGY1 clinical/internship year by the time they are appointed as Department trainees. Individuals applying to our Integrated IR program must meet this requirement and match to our Diagnostic Radiology program to dually train in both residencies.  Applicants who match to Diagnostic Radiology are entering an advanced NRMP residency program.
Prior research experience is not required to be appointed as a resident of either program in our Department. Published research, or research experience, is one of multiple factors considered in review of residency applications.
Board scores are among a number of factors considered in selecting applicants for interviews. There are no minimum score requirements. Our residency programs accept both USMLE and COMLEX scores – Steps 1 and 2, or just Step 1 — for review.
A minimum of three (3) letters of reference (LOR)s is needed to complete an ERAS application to our programs. A maximum of four LORs may be assigned per residency program.
There is no cutoff medical school graduation date to apply or be appointed as a resident in either residency program. PGY2 (R1) residents must have completed their PGY1 clinical year by the time of their PGY2 start date in our Department.
Our Department has invited both MD and DO students for interviews and has trained DOs in both our residency and fellowship programs.
Our residency programs give consideration to medical student applications from both U.S.-based and foreign medical schools. Reputation of medical school is among a number of factors considered in selecting applicants to invite for interviews.
UNC Hospitals sponsors only J1 visas (no exceptions) for all residency and subspecialty programs, including Diagnostic Radiology and Integrated IR.
