How to apply

The academic year begins the end of June.

The application and all supporting documentation must be submitted by Jan. 15 of the year preceding the program start date. However, submitting the application early in the cycle is highly recommended.

You must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). 

  1. Visit the ERAS website. All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs must include these .
  2. Appointments are made through the Radiology Match, which is sponsored by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). You must register for the match in addition to applying through ERAS.
  3. Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited to visit Mayo Clinic for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty. Interviews are generally conducted in February and March. This, however, will depend on COVID-19 restriction travel policies. In such case, interviews will be performed remotely in a video teleconference format.
