Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship Overview

The Interventional fellowship at the Mount Sinai System is an ACGME-accredited, one year program offering seven fellowship positions per year. The Mount Sinai Health System is the largest integrated health care system providing services to the New York metropolitan area. The year-long fellowship consists of  inpatient and outpatient clinical rotations spanning multiple clinical sites including: The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West.  In addition to procedural expertise, clinical care is emphasized at all sites with dedicated rotations and outpatient clinics.  Additional electives in cardiovascular imaging, vascular surgery, cardiac imaging, neurointerventional radiology, vascular medicine and Mount Sinai’s non-invasive vascular imaging lab are available.

The fellowship is based at 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 pulmonary embolism management, 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. Fellows are provided with dedicated academic time to pursue these endeavors.

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, Morbidity and Mortality, aortic surgery and weekly journal clubs and interesting care conferences.  Fellows also participate in national teaching conferences, live case demonstrations and hands-on workshops both on and off site.

The Interventional Radiology Service  continues to grow and maintain institutional support. We have full admitting privileges and see patients in multiple outpatient clinics five days a week. Twelve full time faculty members, five physician assistants, and research personnel provide full-time support for the fellows.
