Can some one please explain how application process goes for radiology! Do you apply at the same time for PGY 1 preliminary and PGY 2 radiology and then have to get matched in both? Or how it works? Please explain
Thank you!!!

yes you apply to both at the same time. some programs are also categorical, which means you dont have to apply for pgy1 separately. you can read more about the process at autminnie and studentdoctornetwork.

you can SOAP, it's like the old scramble.
go to google and search for "applying to advanced radiology programs vs. categorical" you can also search for "So what if get PGY 1 but not PGY 2RADS?"
if you're serious about applying to radiology then it would be in your best interest to read a little about it.

if you're applying for 2016 match, you should do some reading and figure some stuff out on your own before you start asking these questions. the sources i gave you before answer all similar questions in depth. i didn't apply to anything else. the # of programs will depend on how confident you are with your application and where you are trying to go.

Thank you!!!
You apply to both prelim and rad spots at the same time. Then at the time of matching, you rank your rad programs. Then for each rad program, you rank your preference of prelims.

I applied to about 90 programs with a track record of taking imgs and have obtained 11 ivs with my mediocre stats, so rad is definitely more attainable nowadays than in the past.

How are you guys doing on the prelim front? I'm really struggling to get IVs and wondering if it's so late now that I have to hope for SOAP

i've also been struggling for prelims - only one from a radiology program that gave me an interview and told me to apply to the prelim program. What radiology interviews have you guys gotten so far?

Cooper, SUNY upstate, Rutgers, UTMB, Univ Arkansas...

Which program encouraged you to apply to their prelim? Did you get an interview there?

And do you know how reliable the SOAP is for getting into a prelim medicine for IMGs? Hopefully it doesn't come to that but it might..

university of south alabama, i didn't get a separate email inviting me to interview, they just said in the rads interview they will do both interviews on the same day. i think SOAP will be pretty safe for prelim surg programs but prelim meds might be hit or miss, seems like many US applicants try to SOAP in because they drastically underapply to prelim programs.
