Dear Program Directors,

I have completed 3 years of Diagnostic Radiology Residency (R4). Due to unsolved issues regarding my program curriculum, the specific radiology track has been closed. I am now looking for a vacancy in any training year (R1-4) starting in July 2021 or July 2022. I have a great CV with strong LORs. Please let me know if your program has any current or potential radiology positions available with the July 2021 or July 2022 start date. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Program Directors

This is Omar Itani, a PGY1 preliminary surgery intern at Mayo Clinic Rochester. I am looking for a PGY2/R1 position in diagnostic or interventional radiology for July 2021.

I graduated in May 2020 from the American University of Beirut Medical school in the top quartile of my class. I have competitive scores on my USMLE exams. My research in the field of vascular surgery has been published in several peer reviewed journals and global conferences.

I also have significant clinical experience in the US. I did two clinical rotations in the US as a fourth year student at Emory University and Mayo Clinic Rochester and I am currently doing a preliminary year in surgery at Mayo.

Radiology is a very exciting career I feel I can certainly excel in.

I am able to provide any documents you request.

Thank you

Omar Itani, MD

Dear Program Directors,

I have completed a PGY-3 Diagnostic Radiology Residency in June 2019. Due to some medical and family reasons, I left my radiology program. Later on, I started a T32 research job in radiology at JHU. I am now looking for a PGY-4 (R3) position starting in July 2021. I am able to take an independent radiology ER call. I have been studying for the radiology course since I left the radiology program. Please let me know if your program has any current or potential radiology positions available with the July 2021 start date. If you want me to start a few months earlier, I can do so as well as my current job is flexible. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Dear Program Directors,

My name is David Zezoff, and I am a PGY-1 completing my Transitional Year at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, CA. I am seeking a PGY-2/R1 position for July 2021.

I was able to rotate in radiology late in my fourth year of medical school and realized the inadequate exposure I had with the field. I had previously underestimated the scope and knowledge the radiologist brings to clinical decision making. Watching the radiologist review a wide variety of images while advising colleagues with direct clinical implications, revealed the critical role a radiologist plays with patient care. Having already applied to anesthesia, it was far too late to apply to radiology. After realizing the field of radiology is a better fit for me, I am pursuing a PGY2/R1 position for July 2021.

I attended medical school in Southern California, graduating in the first quartile of my class in May 2020. I have passed USMLE Step 1, 2, COMLEX Levels 1, 2 CE and PE, and plan on taking COMLEX Level 3 in September. I have passed all these examinations with above national average marks (P/F for PE). My passion in academics has been mentorship, and it is something I have displayed at each level of my scholastic career. In building a stronger application, I’ve already been conducting a QI project and had two publications with PubMed at my transitional year program at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, California.

I am available and free to discuss my CV/application in further detail and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Radiology Program Directors, 

My name is Anthony Chuprin and I am seeking an R2 position in NYC or the surrounding North-East for July 2021, perhaps sooner if available. 

I am currently at Mayo Clinic Florida in good standing and excited for my early radiology career. Very unfortunately I have had two immediate family members fall ill, one earlier this year and another currently undergoing diagnostication at the time of this post. As the only healthcare professional in my family, I am therefore seeking to transfer and be closer to them. 

My program faculty have been immensely supportive since I approached them with my considerations and have offered to provide letters of recommendation and good standing. It goes without saying, Mayo is an incredible place that I'm very lucky to be at however family is irreplaceable. 

Please let me know by email, phone or text if you would further consider my application.

Thank you for your consideration,

Anthony Chuprin, M.D.
