The ACGME-accredited fellowship is one year in length and is comprised of three fellows. Our Section of Interventional Radiology (IR) consists of a large staff of interventional radiologists, fellows, rotating radiology residents, nurses, technologists, and dedicated advanced practice nurses, one of whom specializes in pediatric care.

We provide training in all aspects of vascular and interventional radiology. Rotations in endovascular surgery, noninvasive vascular imaging lab, image-guided biopsy and drainage, diagnostic neuroradiology, and pain management are available. Each fellow will work some days at one of our regional hospitals and also complete a one month IR rotation at Cleveland Clinic Weston Florida.

Fellows will work in out of our seven all digital angiographic suites. Two of our rooms have DynaCT and 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. The Section also has full-time research coordinators. A core curriculum of IR conferences is provided by our staff, as well as quarterly journal club dinner meetings. Meeting days and funds are given so fellows can travel to training seminars and apply to present at annual society conferences.
