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.

World-Class Research

Research is a primary focus of both IU School of Medicine and Indiana University Health. A dedicated academic research track grants interested residents additional time away from clinical duties to develop personal projects, present their work at national meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals.

The IU School of Medicine interventional radiology faculty are involved in numerous clinical trials and quality improvement projects so residents have ample opportunity to pursue research interests as desired. All interventional radiology residents will be paired with an interventional radiology research mentor at the start of training.

Immersive Clinical Experience

Interventional Radiology at IU School of Medicine 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.

IU School of Medicine interventional radiology serves a diverse patient population, including patients from Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, Sydney & Lois Eskenazi Health, IU Health Methodist Hosptial, IU Health University Hospital, Richardl L. Roudebush VA Medical Center and a variety of community hospitals on and around the Indianapolis campus.

 

Admission Requirements

Applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) to be considered for this residency program.

Apply

 

Internship

The American Board of Radiology (ABR) requires a clinical year of training before integrated diagnostic radiology diagnostic radiology/ interventional radiology training. Applicants must apply to a clinical internship or complete one at an ACGME-accredited program. There are also several internships in the area. Residents are strongly encouraged to take transitional or surgery internships to prepare for the program.

There are a number of excellent internships in Indiana:

  • Transitional Internships at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital, IU Health Methodist and St. Vincent Hospital
  • Surgery Internship at IU School of Medicine
  • Internal Medicine Internships at IU School of Medicine and St. Vincent Hospital

 

All residents must maintain basic life support (BLS) and advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) certification. IU School of Medicine provides support for this process.

Applicants must be a graduate of an LCME-accredited US or Canadian medical school. Graduates of international medical schools – be in compliance with Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) requirements for post-graduate training in the US. The program will consider allopathic and osteopathic trainees, as well as international graduates.

Integrated diagnostic radiology/ interventional radiology applicants are required to have completed an interventional radiology clerkship or dedicated interventional radiology elective during medical training.

Applicants must be a US citizen or permanent resident, or eligible for a J-1 visa. The institution does not sponsor H-1 Visas.
