Applications and Interviews

Thank you for your interest in Duke Diagnostic Radiology!


A message to the applicants of the 2020-2021 season:

We at Duke Radiology recognize this is an extremely important time in your lives and want this virtual recruiting experience to be as informative, applicant-friendly, and relaxed as possible. Life in the COVID era is stressful enough!  We realize that some programs are offering a multitude of different on-line synchronous events such as open houses and meet-and-greets.  We at Duke are concerned that the sheer number of options could put unintentional stress on some applicants who may feel obligated to attend a large number of events in order to display interest in a program.  Therefore, in an effort to respect your time and minimize your stress, we at the Duke Radiology residency program have decided to steer away from providing a large number of synchronous events.  Instead, we are in the process of completing a comprehensive update of our website so that on your own time, without the stress of a pre-interview interview, can surf our site and get many of your questions answered (maybe even in your pajamas!)  We sincerely hope that this site will answer the bulk of your questions about the program so that you can get a sense as to whether you are interested in joining our community.  In addition, our program leaders and the residents on the recruitment committee are happy to answer questions you may have.  Feel free to contact us at the emails found in the link below. We are happy to answer any questions about our amazing residents, outstanding faculty, and the vibrant city of Durham, NC.  We hope you give our program serious consideration.  If you apply and are selected to interview, we feel certain your virtual interview experience will be every bit as stimulating, engaging and informative as if you were at Duke meeting us in person!

Best Wishes,
Duke Radiology Residency Recruitment Committee
Recruitment Committee Members and Contact Information

To be considered for an interview you must:
1) Submit a completed ERAS application
2) Obtain a passing score on the Step 1 USMLE
3) Submit three letters of recommendation
4) Currently be in good standing at or have successfully graduated from medical school

Duke Diagnostic Radiology reviews ALL applications submitted and received through the ERAS system. There are no minimum board scores or other threshold requirements used as a strict “cut-off” that would exclude an applicant from being considered. The entirety of one’s application and comprehensive achievements are taken into account when deciding whether to grant an interview.

Each year we receive, on average, 800 applications and offer, on average, 70 interview slots to find the future residents who will fill our 10 DR positions.

Duke Diagnostic Radiology will be conducting all interviews during the 2020-21 season virtually.  Due to changes in the ERAS application schedule for the 2020-21 season, interview invitations will likely be extended in early-mid November.
The specific interview dates have yet to be determined.

If you have any further questions regarding the interview process, please do not hesitate to contact our Program Coordinator, Candie Stewart at
