    Best IR rotations in the USA

    Hello, I am a Canadian medical student interested in applying for a 1 month rotation in the US in IR. I don't know much about US radiology programs, so I was hoping to find some help here. I am VERY interested in interventional oncology, so I'll ask my question in 2 parts: - what are the...

    Prostatic artery embolization

    What do you think of the current data on PAE? Do you think it could ever cut into the bottom line/current practice of urologists, and further do you see any other interventional procedures that may take specific therapies out of the hands of urologists.

    DOs Competitiveness in Residencies

    Hey, gang! I'm new to the idea of osteopathic medicine and was curious about how one would go about obtaining an interventional radiology residency as a DO. Would this change as a result of the 2020 merger? This is already a very tough residency to gain for MDs, will it be impossible after the...

    ESIR and the Independent Match

    Hey all- I'm an R3 on the ESIR track starting to research the programs in earnest and putting my application together.

    IR and away rotations

    I'm interested in pursuing IR, and as a DO this is really hard to do via the integrated pathway, and in general. So the advice I've gotten is --> high quality DR program-->high quality IR fellowship. The best route for this is probably a program that has ESIR, so that I'll have a better chance...

    general surgery resident looking for research year to transition into radiology

    I'm currently a general surgery pgy1 resident. Unfortunately it took me 6 months into my intern year to realize that my professional interests are aligned with a career in radiology rather than surgery. It took me some time to come to this realization but I definitely want to make this career...

    Call schedule in Interventional Radiology

    Hello IR docs of SDN, I've done some googling and there is surprisingly scarce information on this aside from 1 or two articles. What is the call schedule like as an IR attending and how often do you have to go in? From my IR rotation so far, I've seen that the fellows that go into PP have a...

    My experience applying to residency in Interventional Radiology (IR/DR)

    Should I take a year off or match?

    I know I want to be an interventional radiologist; I am convinced it is everything I want out of a medical career. That being said, there is no way I am going to match to the new IR residency, nor a radiology (ESIR) residency. My gpa is too low, I go to LECOM, I doubt I will be able to publish...

    Fellowship dilemma: Interventional vs. MSK with interventions

    Current R1 in a top 30 DR program trying to figure out what the hell I want to do. Being that I'm in the limbo year between the DR/IR combined residency and the end of one year IR fellowships, I'm not sure what my best options are. I love doing procedures, but I'm not sure how much I LOVE the...

    Interventional Radiology. Does my Prelim Year Matter? Surgery? Medicine? Transitional?

    So I will be applying IR this coming year and I've read a lot about this prelim year requirement. More specifically, some programs require a surgical prelim which is fine but others "strongly encourage" or do not specify. My questions are: 1) How necessary is it to do the surgical prelim year...

    Did anyone actually ENJOY their surgery prelim year?

    Hi all, MS4 looking at prelim intern programs prior to starting an Interventional Radiology residency. Technically, I can do a Transition year, prelim med, or prelim surgery program. It's my understanding that intern year generally sucks no matter what you do (hours, scut work, etc.). Of...
