The UAMS Department of Radiology welcomes applications from all qualified applicants

Candidates for ACGME-accredited programs must meet all program-specific eligibility criteria. You will not need a medical license while in the program, but the College of Medicine will not admit a resident/fellow that the Arkansas State Medical Board (ASMB) will not consider for an Arkansas license. (See Arkansas Medical Practices Act 17-95-401 through 17-95-407 on Licensing and Regulation 14 of the Regulations of the Arkansas State Medical Board.).

Before you interview with us, we ask you to become familiar with the terms, conditions and benefits of appointment and employment.

Notes to International Medical Graduates

We seek the most qualified residents and fellows, regardless of country of education. Some of our most outstanding residents and faculty are international medical graduates (IMGs). Because of the large number of applications and the difficulty of evaluating the records of IMGs, we can offer interviews only to those graduates of medical schools outside the United States and Canada who have a currently valid ECFMG certificate prior to appointment or a full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in Arkansas and meet the eligibility requirements for the program.

If you are an international graduate, we request that you enter the country at least two weeks prior to the start of a residency or fellowship in order to adequately process your appointment and complete all documentation required for you to begin the program on the approved start date.
