We emphasize procedural expertise and clinical care in our two-year residency program (one-year for ESIR track candidates). 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. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for a total of four positions.
As a resident, you spend most of your time at the flagship Mount Sinai Hospital, where you are typically assigned to one of our state-of-the art interventional radiology suites. You cover all cases completed in that suite for a given week, which helps to foster your sense of ownership and responsibility. You may also do inpatient and outpatient rotations at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, and Mount Sinai West. You can take elective rotations in cardiovascular imaging, vascular surgery, neurointerventional radiology, and vascular medicine. We emphasize clinical evaluation of both inpatients and outpatients and you perform rotations in both arenas.
We have abundant research opportunities; our residents and fellows regularly present a host of abstracts at the annual Society of Interventional Radiology meeting, among others. We encourage you to participate in clinical research projects leading to scientific presentations at national meetings and provide dedicated academic time to enable you to pursue these endeavors. Our faculty members and researchers regularly participate in multicenter national trials related to interventional oncology, portal hypertension, peripheral arterial disease, and deep vein thrombosis. We provide financial support to attend academic conferences.
We supplement our clinical training with a robust lecture and multidisciplinary conference schedule. In addition to a core lecture series in vascular medicine, vascular intervention, and interventional oncology, we also offer regularly scheduled conferences related to transplantation, hemodialysis access maintenance, liver tumor board, morbidity and mortality, aortic surgery, and weekly journal clubs, and interesting case conferences. You also participate in national teaching conferences, live case demonstrations, and hands-on workshops both on and off site.
Our 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. Our staff includes full time faculty members, physician assistants, and research personnel with plans for continued growth.
