Interventional radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology that uses minimally invasive, image-guided techniques to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system, while providing high-quality clinical patient care.
From the treatment of peripheral artery disease with angioplasty and catheter-delivered stents to interventional oncology procedures that rely on transcatheter treatment or percutaneous ablation of tumors, an interventional radiologist physician is a member of an exciting, evolving and advancing field.
In recent years, the specialty of interventional radiology has undergone significant changes. The American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) now recognizes interventional radiology as a distinct, stand-alone medical specialty, and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is now in the process of establishing program requirements for this new specialty. The aim of the Interventional Radiology Residency is to increase the quality and safety of patient care by including a greater focus on clinical care in outpatient clinics, inpatient consultation and admission and critical care.
This clinical evolution of our specialty has been accompanied by an increased complexity and expansion of imaging and minimally invasive treatment techniques that are employed in an ever-increasing number and variety of procedures.
We invite all current medical students interested in the field of interventional radiology to attend an informational symposium on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
