Interventional Radiology Residency
The Interventional Radiology (IR) Residency program at Indiana University School of Medicine is a large, multi-hospital tertiary care academic program committed to training elite clinicians specialized in diagnostic, vascular and interventional radiology. The residency is composed of 16 dedicated interventional radiologists with two adjunct Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center faculty.
The spectrum of interventional radiology includes interventional oncology, trauma, aortoiliac and peripheral vascular disease, complex and superficial venous disease, dialysis intervention, transplant and hepatobiliary medicine, gastrointestinal and genitourinary (GI/GU) intervention, men’s health (including benign prostatic hyperplasia), women’s health (including fibroid disease), spine intervention, pain management, palliative care and pediatrics.
Residents rotate through dedicated outpatient interventional radiology clinics throughout their training. Innovative educational initiatives and opportunities to work with world-class faculty researchers are cornerstones of this comprehensive training program.
An Evolution of Interventional Radiology Training
Following the creation of the primary interventional radiology (IR) certificate by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), the ACGME approved the interventional radiology residency training program at IU School of Medicine in 2014. The residency offers a unique clinical specialty given its domain of practice as well as distinctive competency, training in imaging, procedural intervention and patient care. The integrated and independent residency training pathways replace the fellowship.
