Interventional Radiology Residency

Montefiore and our Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers two spots per year in the ACGME-accredited integrated Interventional Radiology Residency Program. Interested applicants should apply through ERAS (ACGME ID: 4163500010) for an advanced level PGY-2 position. Applicants must apply separately for a PGY-1 internship.

Residents in the Interventional Radiology Residency Program will spend the PGY-2, -3, and -4 years integrated with the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program. Please refer to the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program  and Diagnostic Radiology Residency Curriculum pages for more information.

Interventional Radiology residents spend 12 weeks on dedicated vascular and interventional radiology rotations in the first three years of training, participate actively in the VIR clinic, and have opportunities for research in the division. They maintain an active connection to the Interventional Radiology (IR) service during the diagnostic portion of their training, with participation in interdisciplinary and IR teaching conferences.

The PGY-5 and -6 years are dedicated to interventional radiology and relevant clinical rotations. In addition to interventional radiology, residents rotate through the following clinical services: intensive care unit (ICU), vascular surgery, transplant surgery, hepatology and medical oncology. The resident will focus on interventions while on body, chest, musculoskeletal, neurology and mammography rotations. Residents also gain experience in the pre-procedure assessment and follow-up of patients in our IR clinic. The PGY-6 year is almost exclusively dedicated to fluoroscopy, CT- and US-guided procedures under the supervision of our seven, full-time faculty members.
