My IR PD said that a surgical intern year would look favorable come fellowship match time. I guess in my instance it would help me get to the 6 months of vascular/nsx rotations required for NIR fellowship, but im not sure if they would take it into consideration when the time for fellowship arrives.
I did a cush transitional year. During the TY, I did DR, IR and vascular surgery electives.
I think that was the ideal approach. Having said that, I am not in NIR. I do diagnostics and interventional now.
