How to Apply to the Moffitt/USF Radiation Oncology Residency Program

We are dedicated to producing quality, highly trained radiation oncologists prepared to seek careers in academic medicine. To achieve this goal, the program seeks candidates based on their preparedness, ability, academic credentials, communication skills, motivation and integrity, and does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, origin, disability, or veteran status. The program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and we only accept applications submitted through ERAS. You must thus register for both ERAS and NRMP. No appointments are made outside the Match. Please note: Residents must apply independently for a PGY1 year.  

Your application must include:

  • Official undergraduate, graduate school, and medical school transcripts
  • An official record of board scores (NBME, FLEX, USMLE, LMCC, COMLEX, VQE, FMGEMS). USMLE Step 1 or equivalent is required; Step 2 scores are helpful, but not necessary.
  • Dean’s Letter
  • Three letters of recommendation, preferably including a letter from an Internal Medicine faculty member
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal statement
  • ECFMG Certificate for graduates from a medical school outside of the United States or Canada 

Application Process
