How to Apply

2023 Resident Graduation

Thank you for your interest in the University of Michigan Radiation Oncology Residency Program. All applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Your application should be accompanied by your:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Three letters of reference
  • A personal statement

The Dean’s Letter from your medical school should be released and downloaded to ERAS on September 27. In addition, applicants must have completed USMLE Step 2 or at least be scheduled to take the test in early 2024.

All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, which will be comprised of the Program Director, Associate Program Director, and several faculty members. Interviews will be by invitation sent via email. The day will consist of meetings with various faculty and residents along with faculty and resident presentations.

There will be three PGY-2 positions open for the 2025-26 academic year. The program start date is July 1, 2025.

The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and tremendous benefits to our residents/fellows. An overview of salary, benefits and employment eligibility is available on the GME Office website.

We will be hosting an in-person Second Look Event on February 22, 2024, complemented by a welcoming dinner the evening prior on February 21, 2024. This is an optional, non-evaluative visit that will not affect our ranking of applicants. As required by the University of Michigan Office of Graduate Medical Education, we will be certifying our rank list prior to collecting RSVPs for this event. We plan to certify our list on February 1st and begin collecting RSVPs on February 2nd.

If you have any questions, please email Residency Coordinator Katlin Bruce, or call 734-936-8700.
