Education & Training
The first three years (PGY2-PGY4) of the Integrated IR Residency will focus primarily on Diagnostic Radiology rotations. Residents will rotate through thirteen four-week blocks per year, covering all areas of Diagnostic Radiology including chest imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, nuclear medicine, neuro-radiology, gastrointestinal/genitourinary, interventional radiology, ultrasound, body CT, body MR, breast imaging, pediatrics, emergency medicine, cardiac, and American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP). IR residents will have the opportunity to complete at least one IR rotation per year, starting in their PGY2 year.
The last two years (PGY5-PGY6) are devoted primarily to Interventional Radiology and include a wide variety of procedural rotations and an ICU rotation. The program provides a well-rounded experience for complete clinical competence and prepares the resident for IR/DR certification. Opportunities exist for participation in a broad range of clinical and basic research activities.
The Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency provides a complete clinical and academic experience, fully compliant with the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Interventional Radiology, as accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Direct clinical training with graduated responsibility, a comprehensive didactic program, and excellent availability for participation in a wide variety of research activities provide a complete academic Integrated IR residency. In addition, our residents are involved in multidisciplinary conferences with other clinical services (oncology, transplant, and digestive health) to provide comprehensive patient care and clinical experience. Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center is currently one of a small population of institutions approved to offer this residency program, which will qualify graduates to sit for the new ABR IR/DR certificate exams. We are a resident-driven, resident-focused program that delivers a rich educational environment as well as offering residents a great deal of autonomy.
