About the Independent IR Program

The mission of the Interventional Radiology Division at the University of Colorado Anschutz  Medical Campus is to provide the best care to our patients, using innovative techniques across highly diversified medical and surgical subspecialties. We have a deep commitment to providing the highest quality trainee education at all levels, with a focus on developing future leaders in Interventional Radiology (IR). We have aligned clinical, translational, and basic science research interests to support our mission of scientific inquiry and discovery.

Our current one to two year fellows log between 1200 to 1800 cases in one year spanning the gamut of vascular, oncologic, hepatobiliary, dialysis, pain/palliative, genitourinary and gastrointestinal diseases. They also have the opportunity to gain experience in pediatric and neurointerventional procedures. Furthermore, they participate in multidisciplinary conferences, outpatient clinics and noninvasive vascular imaging. Our residents rotate at different teaching hospitals to improve their educational experience.

The University of Colorado IR Residency will provide training for board certification in Interventional Radiology. Starting November 17, 2021 we will accept applications for our one Independent IR Residency position for the 2022-2023 academic year from both ESIR and non-ESIR candidates. Applications are accepted through ERAS (ACGME ID 4150742001). Please see the SIR Guidelines for Independent Applicants.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all interviews will be conducted virtually.

This is a very exciting time in Interventional Radiology! All interested applicants are encouraged to contact our office for further information. Additionally, the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) website(https://www.sirweb.org/) has key facts relating to the new IR residency and other related IR topics.‚Äč
