Interventional Radiology Independent Residency Program

Program Overview

The fellowship program encompasses a year of sub-specialty training in Vascular and Interventional Radiology.

Mission:

Our mission is to develop interventional radiology physicians who are compassionate, provide excellent health care, and are ready for any career opportunity and challenge. We hope to accomplish this through mentoring, educational opportunities both within and outside our institution, and in an environment that promotes personal well-being.

Vision:

The vision for our program is to improve the health care provided to patients in our community and beyond (local, state, regional/national, including veteran) by training well-rounded and clinically exceptional interventional radiologists. In doing so, we seek to enhance the development and well-being of our trainees and faculty so that they can better serve our patients and become the interventional radiologists they strive to be.

Aims:

  1. Graduate outstanding, experienced interventional radiologists ready to serve the unique health care needs of the state of Florida ensuring that 90% of IR fellows are competent in TIPS procedures by April of their final year.
  2. Actively educate residents to be excellent interventional radiologists who are well-versed in the growing field of interventional oncology; 90% of IR fellows will participate in 20 interventional oncology cases by graduation.
  3. Graduate skilled clinician-educators to enter academic or private practice; 20% of IR fellows will enter academics averaged over 5 years; and;
  4. Cultivate and maintain an innovative teaching and learning environment where faculty and residents experience enhanced career development and sustained well-being as measured by our internal and external ACGME surveys.
