Application and Interview Process

Radiology residents at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas are selected entirely through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP), using the Internet-based electronic resident application system (ERAS).

 

Your application is considered complete and ready for review when these documents are received:

  • ERAS application
  • Medical school transcript
  • Minimum of three letters of recommendation (one letter from a radiologist is desirable but not a requirement)
  • Photograph
  • United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores;  Step 1 results are mandatory, Step 2 results are desirable
  • Letter from your medical school dean

 

Completed application with all necessary documentation must be received by Nov. 15.

 

All completed applications are reviewed. Many factors, including an applicant’s academic rank or class standing, board scores, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities and previous experiences are considered before inviting an applicant for a formal interview.

 

The chairman and co-chairman of the residency selection committee, which is made up of both medical staff physicians and residents, perform this screening process. When an applicant interviews with our program, three formal interviews are conducted by members of the residency selection committee, including an interview with one current resident. The interview day also includes a tour of our facilities, attendance of our noon conference, and lunch in the medical center with members of our current residency class.

 

All the screening and interview information is considered by the residency selection committee to arrive at a final rank order that lists applicants according to perceived compatibility with our program.

 

Our program abides by the rules of the NRMP and does not discriminate based on age, religion, ethnicity or national origin.

 

Categorical Track Match or Advanced Track Match

 

Baylor University Medical Center offers five categorical track positions that include an intern year in internal medicine. Two advanced track positions start with PGY2 and require you match separately with a clinical intern year which must be completed prior to your start with us as a PGY2.

 

The interview serves for both the categorical track and the advanced track positions. Applicants do not need to apply directly to the Internal Medicine Residency program.

 

To rank Baylor’s program so you can match for the internal medicine intern year, applicants must apply for the categorical track. Applying only for the advanced track will only allow you to match to start as a PGY2 in the Diagnostic Radiology Residency program. There would be no possibility of matching with us for the clinical year in internal medicine.

 

Applying only for the categorical track would only allow you to match to start as a PGY1 doing your internship at Baylor University Medical Center in internal medicine. There would be no possibility of matching with us to start as a PGY2 without also doing the clinical intern year with our institution in internal medicine.

 

It is acceptable to apply to our program for both the categorical track and the advanced track.

 

If you apply for both tracks, your name will appear to rank for both tracks and we will rank you on both lists. However, if you apply only for one of the tracks, we can only rank you for that track.
