Integrated Diagnostic/Interventional Radiology Residency

The Integrated Diagnostic/Interventional Residency program at IU School of Medicine is an ACGME-accredited five-year program designed to provide crucial training for physicians to further explore and gain expertise in all areas of diagnostic and interventional radiology. Offering one of the most comprehensive radiology training programs, this residency provides students with access to premier hospitals and a diverse imaging research program. Residents who complete this program are prepared to gain certification by the American Board of Radiology and for future practice in interventional radiology.

Collaboration with Subject-Matter Experts

The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is dedicated to providing a collaborative, educational environment for its residents. The Integrated Diagnostic/Interventional Residency program is supported by dozens of diagnostic and interventional radiology faculty members who provide residents with educational staffing sessions. Feedback from these subject-matter experts is carefully tailored to a resident’s level and progress. Resident participation is a vital component to each radiology subspecialty service.

Residents will be immersed in all aspects of interventional radiology, including interventional oncology, trauma, aortic disease, peripheral vascular disease (arterial and venous), dialysis, women’s health, biliary intervention, transplant intervention, gastrointestinal intervention, genitourinary intervention, complex venous access and spine intervention.

Research

The Integrated Diagnostic/Interventional Residency program provides residents with opportunities to work with successful faculty researchers. A dedicated academic research track for interested residents also supplies additional time away from clinical duties to help residents develop projects and present their work at recognized professional meetings and conferences. Residents will also have the opportunity to learn from and work directly with world-class physicians.

Clinical Opportunities

The interventional radiology service functions as a true clinical subspecialty with an emphasis on dedicated outpatient clinics as well as inpatient consults and rounds. Senior interventional radiology residents (PGY 5-6) lead these efforts in conjunction with faculty, advanced providers, residents and medical students. Experts like Matthew Johnson, MD, FSIR, who directs clinical research for the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, provide residents with support and collaboration in areas from breast imaging to biliary intervention. Faculty experts are actively involved in numerous clinical trials which residents have the opportunity of supporting and participating in research.

Admission Requirements

Two integrated diagnostic/interventional radiology positions are offered each year in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. The American Board of Radiology requires a clinical year of training before participating in this program, so applicants must either apply to a clinical internship or have already completed one at an ACGME-accredited program. There are also several internships in the nearby area, of which the department strongly encourages residents take transitional or surgery internships to further their skillset.
