Visiting Fellowship for Practicing Interventional Radiologists

Program Description:

This one-week fellowship is designed to provide a broad exposure to all aspects of interventional radiology to practicing radiologists through direct case observation in a very active clinical practice setting, supplemented by didactic clinical conference sessions and informal discussions. Six full-time interventional radiologists, as well as four fellowship residents, comprise the staff at the institute and are available for interaction with visiting fellows. In addition, visiting fellows are given an opportunity to become part of the interventional team and to participate in the decision-making process for the entire range of interventional radiologic procedures performed. Close association and direct interaction with the faculty and staff allow individualized attention to questions and clinical problems relevant to their own clinical practice. An extensive library of instructional videotapes and patient demonstrations, teaching files and current journals in interventional medicine complement the live procedures.
