Georgetown University Hospital, Department of Radiology is Accepting applications for our DIRECT pathway position. The DIRECT pathway is a training schedule for those interested in Interventional Radiology. The program is combines an IR fellowship within the framework of a diagnostic radiology residency. Trainees are then eligible for the ABR diagnostic boards as well as CAQ for interventional radiology.

Georgetown was one of the first programs to be granted approval for this training pathway in 2003 and has filled a spot each year with highly motivated applicants. Each DIRECT pathway trainee is integrated into the diagnostic radiology curriculum with additional rotations in IR each year. The fellowship year is spent entirely in IR with rotations at other affiliated institutions. DIRECT pathway trainees receive a total of 21 months of IR training and 27 months of diagnostic training allowing them to sit for the diagnostic radiology boards.

One position is offered each year to a qualified candidate. Applicants must be PGY 2 or higher in General Surgery or a Surgical Sub-speciality. Medical School performance, USMLE step 1 and 2 scores, letters of recommendation and a strong interest in interventional radiology are rigorously evaluated.
