Interventional Radiology Independent Residency

Learn more about our new Interventional Radiology Independent Residency

The traditional Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship will sunset on June 30, 2020. All ACGME-approved interventinoal radiology training programs in the US are required after that point in time to offer two years of training to fulfill the training requirement for interventional radiology. The Interventional Radiology Independent Residency will replace the traditional Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship starting July 1, 2020.

Graduates from the program will be eligible to apply for certification in interventional radiology. We currently have approval for one yearly position in the Interventional Radiology Independent Residency. We will be recruiting for the 2020-2021 academic year in December 2018.

Diagnostic Radiology residents currently in their PGY4 year (ESIR or Non-ESIR) are eligible to apply for the Interventional Radiology Independent Residency.

Further details about the Interventional Radiology Independent Residency can be found on the Society of Interventional Radiology website.


How to Apply

We use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to electronically accept residency applications, letters of recommendations, dean’s letters, transcripts and other credentials directly from your medical school.

We will begin accepting applications for 2020-2021 position accepted through ERAS beginning Dec. 1. Deadline for applications is Dec. 15.

We will review applications from both ESIR and non-ESIR applicants. We will interview/rank candidates based on application quality and not whether candidates will train as an independent IR resident for one or two years.
