Interventional Radiology Residency Program

Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency Program

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency Program is an ACGME approved program. We are a categorical 6- year program with a preliminary (PGY1) year spent in the department of General Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The program participates in the NRMP and currently fill 2 positions for each year for a total of 10 residents.

The first three years of the diagnostic radiology portion of the program (PGY2-4) will be spent closely in parallel with the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program. The final two year of the program (PGY5-6) will focus on Interventional radiology and will also have rotation in Critical Care, Medical, Surgical and Radiation Oncology and Vascular Medicine as well as a dedicated rotation in Pediatric Interventional Radiology at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Interventional Radiology rotations will include training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the West Roxbury Veterans Administration Hospital and the Brigham and Women’s Vascular and Vein Care Centers in Newton Corner, Foxboro and Weymouth.

Residents completing the 6-year training program will be eligible for the American Board of Radiology IR/DR certificate.

Independent Interventional Radiology Residency Program

The independent IR residency is two year in length (total of seven years of postgraduate training). This training format is only available to graduates of a diagnostic radiology residency. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is proud to be part of this training format.

The nationwide launch date for the Independent IR Residency is July 1, 2020 as the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowships will sunset on June 30, 2020.

Our program is an ACGME approved program participating in the NRMP and follows the December Cycle.

We accept trainee applications from those that have participated in ESIR (Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology) as well as non ESIR trainees.

Diagnostic radiology residents who want to train in an independent IR residency apply during R3 (PGY-4) through the ERAS application system for the two year program.

Graduates who have completed an approved ESIR curriculum can place into the second year of the two year program reducing the training time to one year.

The program includes training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital division of Angiography and Interventional Radiology, Cross Sectional Interventional Radiology, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, our outpatient vein centers, Vascular Surgery and Angiography at the West Roxbury Veterans Association Medical Center. In addition to multiple elective opportunities at participating training institutions.
