How to Apply


Note:
Despite the rebranding of Mount Sinai Roosevelt to Mount Sinai West on November 17, 2015, for the purposes of applicants this season (2016/2017), our name has not changed for ACGME, ERAS, and NRMP (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai/St. Lukes Hospital Center). 

The Diagnostic Radiology program at Mount Sinai St. Luke's/West Hospital participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) with the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  Please note that the NRMP does not allow us to discuss, interview, or offer positions to applicants that have preexisting match commitments for 2018. You must have an NRMP waiver before we are allowed to even discuss a position. 

All residents are required to complete a clinical year (emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, surgery or surgical subspecialties or any combination of these), prior to matriculation in our program. This year must consist of training accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC),  or the College if Family Physicians of Canada. The clinical year may also comprise a transitional year accredited by the ACGME or equivalent organization. Please submit a program letter of recommendation from this experience. Please note that the ACGME recently 10/19/15 notified programs regarding "eligibility considerations". 

During the clinical year, elective rotations in diagnostic radiology must occur only in radiology departments with an ACGME-accredited diagnostic radiology residency program and cannot exceed two months. See accepted applicants

What are we looking for?
Critical thinking skills are important. We don't want residents to take everything they read or hear at face value. For example, after a journal club, residents have had their comments/analysis published in letters to the editor. We would like future residents to do this as well.

The resident often has to work with a team and at times is in charge of the department. In addition to medical knowledge, interpersonal and leadership skills are very important. Some applicants have had opportunities to develop interpersonal and leadership skills in the workplace or volunteer situations.


For the 2018 match:
For applicants expecting to matriculate in 2019, we encourage completion of the application (with the exception of the MSPE) by October 1, 2017.  We may only consider applications that are complete at the time that the Dean's letters (MSPE) are released, October 1, 2017. 

This year we will not be matching for positions that start in July 2018.
