Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship Overview
The Interventional Radiology section at the Mount Sinai Hospital offers four fellowship positions per year. The year-long fellowship consists of five clinical rotations, including three one-week rotations in the interventional suite, one week in cardiovascular imaging, and one week of academic and elective time. During elective time, fellows can spend time in vascular surgery, cardiac imaging, neurointerventional radiology, vascular medicine and Mount Sinai's ultrasound vascular lab.
The fellowship is set in The Mount Sinai Hospital, a tertiary-care university hospital in Manhattan. Our goal is to provide extensive hands-on training in the different modalities currently used in vascular and interventional radiology. The great strength of Mount Sinai's program is the diverse nature of the clinical material encountered, which provides ample opportunity for fellows to develop broad experience. Our clinical practice is comprised of interventional oncology, peripheral arterial disease, liver and kidney transplant intervention, venous intervention including venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis and IVC filter placement, women’s health, and dialysis access and maintenance.
There are many research opportunities in the Department, and our fellows regularly participate in clinical research projects leading to scientific presentations at national meetings. The Division regularly participates in multicenter national trials related to interventional oncology, portal hypertension, peripheral arterial disease, and deep vein thrombosis.
The clinical training is supplemented by a robust lecture and multidisciplinary conference schedule. Core lecture series in vascular medicine, vascular intervention and interventional oncology are supplemented by conferences related to transplantation, hemodialysis access maintenance, liver tumor board, and aortic surgery.
The Interventional Radiology Service section continues to grow and maintain institutional support. We have full admitting privileges and see patients in an outpatient clinic five days a week. Five full time faculty members, a physician’s assistant, and research personnel provide full-time support for the fellows.
