The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology participates in the Eletronic Residency Application Process (ERAS). Positions are filled through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

All applications are reviewed and consideration is given to those who meet the above minimum requirements.
We welcome applications from all regions.
Here is a useful guide to applying to radiology.
The Program Director and the application review committee review all applications that meet the above criteria and determine which applicants to invite to an interview. Our interviews take place in November, December, and January on pre-determined interview dates by invitation only. Invitations are sent via e-mail. Applicants will receive correspondence whether or not they are selected to interview. Interviews are granted on a rolling basis.
Applicants will get a chance to meet each other and current residents during an informal gathering the morning of the interview day.
The interview day begins at 8:30 a.m. in our Department of Radiology Education Classroom. Dr. Dworak or Dr. Schubert will meet with all interviewees to present an overview of our residency program.
Each applicant will then participate in one-on-one interviews with members of our radiology teaching faculty and residents followed by lunch with our first year residents. Residents will be available throughout the day to answer any questions that you may have regarding our program and to provide a tour of the hospital. The day concludes at approximately 1:30 p.m.
We participate in the NRMP (National Residency Match Program).
What Our Residents Say About The Program
"You can work hard in any program and learn radiology. But when you work in a place where your colleagues are your closest friends and the environment is one of collaboration and camaraderie, it no longer seems like work. That is why I came to Creighton. "
"Creighton has a long history of producing well trained residents that have excellent board pass rates and placement for fellowships and jobs."
"Amongst all the positive things I took away from my Creighton interview, the most important was that it really felt like a good fit. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why, other than to say it was "a feeling," but after being here for two years I know that it's the people that continue to make it feel right. We have great collegiality and a fun work environment, borne out of great residents and faculty."
"Friendly, family-like atmosphere that focuses on providing a comprehensive educational experience and a positive work environment."
"The small program with a close knit group of residents and faculty is what I think makes Creighton a great radiology program. There is a non malignant learning environment with residents and faculty who are down to earth, easily approachable, and all willing to work together as a team. There are ample studies to learn from, educational conferences daily, and time to spend reading about cases. With the small program and absence of fellows, there are plenty of opportunities for autonomy and to perform procedures-even as a first year resident. Overall, this program provides a positive learning environment with a solid curriculum and a lot of faculty/resident camaraderie that makes day to day work as a radiology resident fun!"
