Interventional Radiology - Independent Residency

The interventional radiology (IR) – independent residency program is up to two years and focused on the clinical care and treatment of interventional patients including pre-procedure care, performance of the procedure and post-operative care. The division of vascular and interventional radiology has a dedicated outpatient IR Clinic and an active inpatient admitting service. Research opportunities are abundant with faculty mentoring throughout the process. In addition to rotations within the division of interventional radiology, other IR-related rotations include vascular surgery, SICU, hematology/oncology and pediatric IR at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

During all IR rotations, the curriculum for residents includes primary responsibility for all pre-procedural evaluation, primary operator for performance of procedures and all patient follow-up for the division of vascular and interventional radiology. This includes daily teaching rounds, discussing the daily cases with the attending vascular interventional radiologist and weekly one-hour lectures given by the attending interventional radiologists. Conferences also include multiple weekly multidisciplinary conferences. Experience in neuro-interventions is also part of the curriculum, including the endovascular treatment of strokes.


The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville department of radiology is committed to fostering faculty and fellow research projects.

The institution has been engaged in clinically applied research for many years and is enriched by the presence of faculty who have demonstrated excellence in performing research and in training new investigators.

Our department recognizes the need to train and support its residents and fellows in the area of research. Every spring, a Research Day is held, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their work. An annual award for resident research is a reflection of the well-designed research studies occurring in our training programs. We strongly encourage our residents and fellows to publish their scientific projects and present them at professional meetings.
