Our ACGME-accredited fellowship is one year in length and is composed of three fellows. Our Section of Interventional Radiology consists of ten full-time staff interventional radiologists, two to three fellows, fifteen nurses, sixteen technologists, two to three rotating radiology residents and five advanced practice nurses, one of whom specializes in pediatric care. Over 9,500 vascular and interventional procedures are performed annually.
We provide training in all aspects of vascular and interventional radiology. Rotations in endovascular surgery, noninvasive vascular imaging lab, image guide biopsy and drainage, diagnostic neuroradiology and pain management are available. There are a total of seven angiographic suites, all digital. Two of our rooms have DynaCT. Every room has ultrasound available. We interpret 5 to 10 MR and/or CT angiograms per day. The fellows are expected to be actively involved in approximately five procedures per day. Particular emphasis will be placed on the more advanced procedures that may be beyond the level of training of the rotating radiology residents (such as TIPS, percutaneous angioplasties, stent placements, stricture dilatations, biliary and genitourinary interventions, chemoembolization, selective internal radiation therapy, RFA, vascular malformation treatment, uterine fibroid embolization, etc.) The fellow will generate the formal report for each procedure and will visit and examine the patient both before and after the procedure. The Section does have admitting privileges and a busy IR clinic. The fellows will participate in either their own research projects or in an on-going research project. We have full-time research coordinators.
A core curriculum of dedicated interventional radiology conferences are provided by our staff over the course of the year. We have quarterly journal club dinner meetings. In order to apply, please send curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation. Use of the universal application form is strongly encouraged. These documents may be submitted by mail, fax or e-mail attachment. Applicants are expected to have completed an accredited residency program in diagnostic radiology prior to starting the fellowship. We do participate in the NRMP Match and our Match number is 11253511.
