On behalf of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), we would like to invite you to attend the SIR 2019 Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas on March 23 - 28th, 2019 for FREE.

Interventional Radiology is a patient-centered specialty that provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of a variety of medical conditions. It is one of the newest specialties approved by the ACGME and is gaining popularity among students at an exponential rate. Learn more about the specialty and training pathways to become an IR, and meet IRs at our dedicated student programming at the national SIR meeting— FREE membership and registration for all SIR student members.
