About the 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 residents log cases 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.

The University of Colorado IR Residency will provide training for board certification in Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology. Through October 21, 2021, we will accept applications for our two IR residents matriculating in July 2022 via the integrated pathway. Applications are accepted through ERAS (ACGME ID 4160700001).

The interview days are coordinated with interview dates for the University of Colorado Diagnostic Radiology Residency to ease planning for those also applying to the Diagnostic Radiology program. 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
