Vascular Interventional Radiology Fellowship

The Department of Radiology offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited clinically based fellowship for graduates interested in pursuing a career in Vascular Interventional Radiology. More than 13,500 studies are performed each year by the Vascular Interventional Radiology Division. Fellows gain experience in all aspects of diagnostic and interventional vascular studies, encompassing the full spectrum of invasive and noninvasive procedures: (carotid stenting, endovascular repair of AAA, PTA, stenting, embolotherapy and thrombolysis) venous access, dialysis access maintenance, diagnostic and interventional GI and GU procedures (TIPS, radiofrequency ablation, chemoembolization, biliary decompression and stenting and fibroid embolization), percutaneous nephrostomy, nephroureteral catheter placement, percutaneous abscess drainage and biopsies. The high volume and broad range of procedures, coupled with excellent instruction by our dedicated faculty, provide a superior opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a career in vascular and interventional radiology.

The DIRECT Pathway offers a six year program that allows for more clinically dedicated training. This combines two years of medical/surgical training, followed by two years of diagnostic radiology as well as two years of interventional radiology training.

Within the newly established Center for Heart and Vascular Health, is the development of a comprehensive vascular program with collaborative efforts from the Vascular Interventional Radiology Division, the Vascular Surgery Division and the Department of Cardiology. This will allow for a wide range of state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with vascular disease. Opportunities for study broaden the dimension of our fellowship program.

Application process opens December 1, 2014 for the 2016-2017 Academic Year.
