Show Notes

In this episode, University of Virginia interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology program director Dr. Luke Wilkins and our guest host Sunny Murthy discuss the factors that contribute to a successful IR residency application and interview.

With the USMLE Step 1 exam moving towards a pass/fail system, Dr. Wilkins emphasizes that it is important for applicants to distinguish themselves by finding ways to show dedication to the field of IR. We also discuss the benefits of having exposure to different programs prior to the application cycle, whether it is through rotations, virtual communication, or SIR involvement.

Dr. Wilkins encourages each applicant to recognize programs that fit best with their personality and learning style. He offers his perspective on good program characteristics to look for, such as flexibility in career preparation and wide case variety. Finally, Dr. Wilkins speaks about how authenticity in the application process can maximize benefits for both applicants and programs.
