SCARD Recommendations for Radiology Fellowships

The Society of Chairs in Academic Radiology Departments (SCARD) leadership, in collaboration with fellowship program directors from around the country, is addressing fellowship match issues that have developed due to COVID-19 with the following recommendations:

  • The interview season has been extended to April 30th. 
  • All interviews should be done virtually.
  • All candidates whether they were interviewed in person or virtually should be given equal consideration.    


RadExam is a collaborative effort of the Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). It provides each Program Director with specialty and resident level specific exams that can be administered at the end of each rotation. 165 programs have signed up as of July 2018. Sign up here if your program does not currently participate. For more information about RadExam including example data snapshots and links to a short video, click here.
