The Hartford Hospital Radiology Residency Program requires a preliminary/transitional year of training. A preliminary year of Internal Medicine is offered at Hartford Hospital in conjunction with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

Final selections for the year of Medicine are made by the Internal Medicine Department at UConn and not by the Department of Radiology at Hartford Hospital.

Applications will be processed and reviewed upon receipt by our Education Committee. Approximately 60 applicants will be invited for interviews.  Therefore, an attempt should be made to make the initial application as strong as possible. Interviews will be held on selected weekdays from 9:30 AM - 4:15 PM from late November through the end of January.

Resident selection will take place through the Matching Program for PGY2 positions in our Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program.
