Diagnostic Radiology, NuRad and DR-IR Programs

All residency positions are filled through the National Residency Matching Program.

Diagnostic Radiology, NuRad and DR-IR residency positions are categorical programs that include the PGY-1 clinical year. Applications and documentation are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application (ERAS).

NuRad applicants must demonstrate qualifications for the diagnostic radiology as well as interest in an nuclear medicine career. If you are interested in either of these positions, be sure to tell the program coordinator when you confirm your interview appointment.


Residency Application Process

Applications and supporting documents must be completed electronically through ERAS by November 15th. The program director will consider all ERAS applications that include:

  1. Completed application form
  2. Personal statement
  3. Official medical school transcript
  4. USMLE scores (all available)
  5. Letters of recommendation from three clinical faculty.

Eligible qualified candidates will be invited by email for an interview between late October and January. Download the Applicants Eligibility Criteria (pdf)

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

If you have questions about any of the residency options, please contact the Program Coordinator.

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.

Note 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.
