Applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Applicants must be in their fourth year of medical school or a graduate of an American or Canadian medical school. In addition, the applicant must either be eligible for licensure or hold a valid medical license in the State of California.
International Medical Graduates will be considered on an individual basis. UCSD accepts ECFMG-sponsored J-1 visas. Please note that H-1B visas are not available to trainees at our institution.
This residency program requires an ACGME-approved non-radiology clinical internship prior to beginning radiology training. The application process for internship is entirely separate from this radiology residency application process. Your internship does not need to be at UC San Diego Medical Center. Most of our residents complete a Preliminary Medicine, Surgery, or Transitional Year Internship.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Please submit all application materials by October 15.
Our Selection Committee will review all applications, including the Student Performance Evaluation Letters (Dean's Letter) in early November. If selected, you will be contacted to schedule a personal interview.
Please do not anticipate any correspondence from our Selection Committee concerning interviews until the end of November. We receive over 650 applications each year and interview approximately 80 applicants annually. All interviews are scheduled during the month of January.
We seek candidates with a strong educational background and
well-rounded academic and personal experiences. Our primary goal is to train
fundable academic radiologists with a research emphasis. At the same time, we
offer broad and varied clinical training, as we believe superior clinical
skills are necessary for success as a clinician-scientist.
