Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship

Program Director
Jacob Cynamon, MD
Professor of Clinical Radiology
Chief, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology

The Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship Program at Montefiore offers two, one-year fellowship positions that cover a broad range of vascular and nonvascular diagnostic and interventional procedures. The ACGME-accredited program is based at the Moses Division.

An unusually close working relationship with the clinical services at Montefiore, including Vascular Surgery, Urology, Gastroentology and General Surgery, helps provide a rich experience. In addition to the excellent clinical material, VIR divisional, departmental and interdepartmental didactic and case conferences enhance the fellowship experience.

As the fellow gains more experience, he or she also plays an increasingly active role in  teaching  radiology residents.

VIR Fellowship Experience at Montefiore

The day generally begins at 7:30 am, with work rounds on the patient floors, and usually concludes around 6 pm, often with a film review session. Weekly and monthly conferences include:

  • Vascular Surgery Grand Rounds
  • Angio didactic and case conferences
  • Angio Journal Club, Basic Principles of Vascular
  • Interventional Radiology and Quality Assurance.

The fellows are on call on average one out of three weeks, always with attending staff as backup.

Cardiovascular diagnosis and intervention are emphasized, plus transcatheter thrombolysis, embolization, intravascular stents, IVC filter placements and TIPS procedures are also performed routinely. Fellows are also responsible for nonvascular interventional procedures, e.g., biliary drainage and stents, percutaneous nephrostomy, ureteral stents and abscess drainage. The division also has assumed responsibility for peripheral MR and CT angiography. Fellows will have the chance  to take part  in Montefiore's stent graft program. There is also ample opportunity for research and publication
