The UTHSCSA Diagnostic Radiology Residency

Application Process


Dr. Kist

Greetings from San Antonio!


Thank you for your interest in Radiology and our Diagnostic Radiology Residency program. We are looking forward to recruiting a talented group of residents in the upcoming Match, and I hope you will consider becoming one of them.


As you know, the American Board of Radiology requires five years of postgraduate training, including a clinical internship. Therefore, if you are currently a medical student, you are welcome to apply for our four-year Radiology residency. In which case you would join following a transitional or preliminary clinical internship.

Preliminary Medicine internships are available in San Antonio. Please contact Patricia Wathen, M.D., residency program director for the Department of Medicine at (210) 567-4820 if you have any questions regarding the Preliminary Medicine program.


Of course, we also solicit applications from those who have finished medical school and are currently in or will have completed an ACGME approved clinical internship or residency by June 2017. The program for such applicants would also consist of four years of straight radiology training.


Foreign medical graduates may contact ECFMG, which will transmit the application to the programs designated by the applicant. Only the J-1 visa is supported, and foreign graduates must have secured an ACGME-approved internship before starting with our program. There are no minimum USMLE score requirements, but keep in mind that the applicant pool is highly competitive.


Again, I am happy that you are thinking of joining our team. Please write or call if you have any other questions.
