Fellow Testimonials

Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute is the most prestigious Interventional radiology training program. For the past 30 years, MCVI has trained leader interventional radiologists and it continues to provide the same quality training year after year. MCVI provides its trainees the opportunity to become strong clinical Interventional Radiologists with the knowledge to become technically skilled proceduralists but more importantly strong clinical interventionists with the clinical judgement and skills required to work-up patients and determine the best possible course of action, including non-IR procedures/treatments. This is based on recognizing when to intervene and, even more difficult, when not to proceed with a procedure. Additionally, as an MCVI fellow you have the privilege to care for patients with complex diseases processes and to perform high-end, unique procedures which are complex in their own regard. At MCVI we had the opportunity to work and learn from great interventional radiologists who are both innovators and leaders in the field. I have received outstanding teaching and mentorship, for which I am very grateful.
