Any tips for VIR rotation for a 4th year medical student? Will be doing my rotation at a very clinically strong VIR program. We have a great relationship with vascular surgery. VIR does a lot of peripheral arterial interventions such as cold feet, EVAR, renal stents, carotids. Also interventional onc. Basically VIR at my program does the full gamut of procedures that are under the umbrella of interventional radiology. VIR admits patients, has a consult service, has a general Interventional radiology clinic in the specialty building, has a vein clinic, and an interventional onc clinic as well. They are part of a tumor board with rad onc, surg onc, med onc; as well as a vascular board with vascular surgery. What should I read up on besides the handbook of interventional radiologic procedures? Any medical therapies I should be up to speed on, ie PVD medical therapies, treatment goals for lipids. What should I know about liver cancers? I will read up on procedures like TIPS, including indications, contraindications... should I know post procedure medical therapy to look like a star? Any other advice?
