IR/DR Residency

Application Process

Our residency program selects one resident for IR/DR each year through the National Resident Matching Program.

Our program will begin accepting applications for Interventional Integrated (IR/DR) Radiology Residency candidates through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERASTM) when the system opens for institutions on September 15. Please do not fax additional application documents, unless requested by the Program. We download documentation from ERAS multiple times daily.

The University of Kansas Medical Center is an equal opportunity/ affirmative action employer. Applications are sought from all qualified people regardless of race, religion, color, sex, disability, veteran status, national origin, age, or ancestry.

A complete application includes:

  • personal statement
  • photograph
  • Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE or Dean's letter)
  • copy of all USMLE scores available (Step 2 scores should be received before institution rank list submittal deadline-February)
  • medical school transcript
  • at least three letters of recommendation (at least one should come from outside of Radiology)

The deadline for application is December 1. However, we encourage you to submit your application sooner for earlier consideration. 

Residency Selection Committee members review all completed applications to select those applicants for interview. All applicants will be invited by email through the ERAS system. It is our policy that all applicants will receive a determination email (invited for interview or not) from our Program by December 5.

Interviews will be conducted on Tuesdays in October, November, December and January. 

The Department of Radiology residency is a five year program (NRMP Track# 1208416A0). Please see the ACGME website for the preliminary year requirements.

If you have any additional questions about our Program, please contact the Residency Program Coordinator, Sarah Hartman, 913-588-1847,
