Program Overview

UF Interventional Radiology Independent Residency offers sub-specialty training in interventional radiology designed to equip physicians with the training needed to excel in careers in academic or private practice. Our program offers high degrees of progressive autonomy with an emphasis on patient safety and high-quality care. This is achieved through high-volume, focused training in a well-rounded scope of modern interventional radiology. Fellows will be first operator on the vast majority of cases throughout training. Example procedures fellows will master include: the performance of Y90 mapping and administration procedures, complex trauma embolization procedures, tumor ablation procedures, and TIPS placements.

UF Interventional Radiology fellows graduate prepared to practice at the forefront of our rapidly growing specialty.

Mission:

Our mission is to develop interventional radiology leaders, scholars, and clinician-educators 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. Mold outstanding, experienced interventional radiologists ready to serve the health care needs of the state of Florida;
  2. Actively educate residents to be excellent interventional radiologists who are well versed in the growing field of interventional oncology;
  3. Graduate skilled clinician-educators to enter academic or private practice, and;
  4. Accumulate and maintain an innovative teaching and learning environment where faculty and residents experience enhanced career development and sustained well-being.
