I definitely want to do IR. Top 10 DR vs Top 5 DR. Ann Arbor vs Baltimore. Clinical pathway with surgery heavy intern year but resulting in great clinical interventionalist vs Cusher intern year, less surgery/IR months but still a good interventionalist. Guaranteed IR and DR training vs DR training and probably guaranteed IR fellowship/ESIR.

I can only rank one program #1.

I'm not applying IR, but if I was I think I'd take the guarantee. Ranking you radiology training based on how cushy your intern year is/isn't seems like a bad idea. It's one (relatively inconsequential) year of your career.

Michigan is slowly becoming an IR training powerhouse. They have developed a well integrated IR pathway modeling the UVA pathway. They cover the breadth of pathology including vascular disease (complex PAD and aortic interventions (including TEVAR and fenestrations ) and this is an important skill set that Johns Hopkins currently does not provide. So, if you are certain you want to do IR and geography is not an issue , you can not go wrong going to U of Michigan and getting trained by the likes of Dr. Saad, Dr. Disika and Dr. Williams.

I don't know about Hopkins bc I didn't interview there, but most of the DR folks at Michigan stand all day at standing desks. Good culture that preps you for IR, haha.
