UMMS requirements and how do I apply to the University of Massachusetts Medical School Radiology Residency Program?

A.  Applicants should review UMMS GME eligibility requirements found on the GME website - https://www.umassmed.edu/gme/future-residentsfellows/eligibile/.

All applicants must apply through ERAS submitting an individual ERAS application for each UMMS Radiology Residency Program. We welcome you to apply to all programs of interest.

What is application deadline?

A.

  • We begin screening applications when ERAS opens to programs on October 21, 2020.
  • Applicants are requested to refrain from contacting us (either by phone or email) to ask or check on the status of your application. 
  • We anticipate sending out our virtual interview invitations in late October/early November 2020.  Waitlisted applicants will also be notified.

What is the USMLE cutoff score?

A. There is no USMLE cutoff score. We employ a holistic applicant review where the USMLE scores are just a part of the application taken into context with the rest of the application content.

How many letters of recommendation do you require?

A. We require three letters of recommendation.

Do you require clinical experience prior to radiology residency at UMMS?

A. It is required that one ACGME-accredited clinical training year is completed prior to starting residency with us. Most of our residents complete internships in medicine, surgery, or transitional year programs.

Do you have a cutoff year of medical school graduation?

A. No, we do not have a cutoff year.

Does your program sponsor any Visas?

A. We support J1 visas.

How many applicants do you interview?

A. We interview approximately 86 applicants.

How long is the interview day?

A. We hold morning and afternoon sessions on each of the interview days. Each session is about five hours long. Specifics of the interview day will be determined once a candidate has selected an interview session. This year the interview days will be done via Zoom, due to COVID-19, but the format of the day will remain the same.

Will there be an interview dinner?

A. Yes. Dinners take place either the night before or after the interview. Exact location and time will be determined once a candidate has selected an interview session. Due to COVID-19, in lieu of our usual pre/post interview dinner with the residents we will be having a pre or post interview virtual resident/applicant get together.

Who can I contact for more information?

A. You can contact Karen Granquist, residency program administrator at  Karen.Granquist@umassmed.edu
