Application Instructions

The curriculum provides a strong core foundation in diagnostic imaging that will serve as the knowledge base to allow for accurate diagnosis and planning of image guided interventions. The program will provide extensive technical and clinical training that fosters proficiency in the treatment of a broad array of diseases through image-guided interventions. It will do so in the context of engendering principles of teamwork, system-bases practice, professionalism, and lifelong learning.

Importantly, the longitudinal care of patients before and after intervention will be emphasized, in the larger context of the multidisciplinary health care team and health system. 

Broad exposure to multiple subspecialty areas will be provided, including but not limited to image-guided interventions in: 

  • interventional oncology, 
  • hepatobiliary, 
  • advanced portal hypertension management, 
  • peripheral vascular (arterial) disease, 
  • endoleak repair, 
  • endovascular thrombolysis, 
  • venous insufficiency, 
  • women’s health (uterine artery embolization and pelvic congestion syndrome), 
  • venous access, 
  • hemodialysis access maintenance, 
  • lymphatic intervention, 
  • percutaneous tumor ablation, 
  • abscess drainage, and 
  • urologic intervention. 

The training program is organized to support the ACGME core competencies and foster graduated levels of responsibility and milestone achievement. Upon completion of the program, graduates will have achieved the skill sets necessary for the independent practice of Interventional Radiology and will be well equipped to do so in the larger complex context of the healthcare team.
