Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency
The Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency at NYU Grossman School of Medicine trains physicians to develop outstanding imaging interpretation abilities, clinical acumen, and technical skills for a successful career in interventional radiology. We focus on synthesizing diagnostic radiologic imaging, interventional radiologic procedures, patient management, and clinical medicine with a constant focus on delivering high-quality patient care.
Our fully accredited, five-year training program prepares residents to become board-certified in both diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology, providing thoughtfully balanced training in all diagnostic radiology subspecialties and robust procedural and clinical training in interventional radiology.
Residents who have completed a one-year, accredited clinical internship are eligible to apply. A preliminary year in general surgery is preferred, but we also accept interns from internal medicine, surgical specialties, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, family practice, and emergency medicine.
Resident Clinical Training
Physicians in the Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency complete the same training as those in our Diagnostic Radiology Residency for the first three years of the program. During the final two years, training is concentrated on interventional radiology.
Clinical rotations are organized around competency-based goals and objectives in interventional radiology. The majority of rotations are procedure based and take place at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, and our outpatient center NYU Langone Radiology—32nd Street. Residents also rotate through the surgical intensive care unit and other procedural specialties, including vascular surgery and interventional neuroradiology, provide inpatient consultations, and participate in rotations dedicated to clinical decision making. Residents refine procedural and clinical skills with increasing autonomy throughout their training.
Clinical research and quality improvement initiatives are an important part of the interventional radiology curriculum. Integrated interventional radiology residents have the same research opportunities as those in our Diagnostic Radiology Residency.
Integrated interventional radiology residents take part in a comprehensive two-year curriculum, which includes a weekly interventional radiology case lecture series, case conference, and journal club.
This curriculum is enriched by regular participation in surgery, wound care, and hepatobiliary multidisciplinary conferences. Residents also present at a monthly interventional radiology morbidity and mortality conference. The goal of these experiences is to model the roles of the interventional radiologist as expert consultants to other physicians and key members of multidisciplinary care teams.
We encourage all interventional radiology residents to attend at least one major interventional radiology conference. Additional local meetings, such as those hosted by the New York Roentgen Society, provide opportunities to network with peers from other nearby institutions.
The Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency is overseen by Nancy R. Fefferman, MD, vice chair for radiology education, and Kopal S. Kulkarni, MD, program director.
