Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency Overview

IR Residency

The Integrated IR Residency is a six year residency track with emphasis on both diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. The six-year residency curriculum includes one year of surgical preliminary training, diagnostic radiology in the following three years, and interventional radiology in the last two years. Applicants apply through the NRMP main match and begin residency training during as part of the categorical program. 

The residency program is designed to offer a combination of diagnostic and interventional radiology through a rich educational experience in image-based diagnosis, as well as image-guided procedural education, with focus on peri-procedural patient care. Education in the integrated program fosters individual development and practice of technical skills, as well as clinical judgment.

The program is supervised by the interventional radiologists at Loma Linda Medical Center and consists of clinical teaching and exposure that is designed to train first rate interventional radiologists to become pioneers and leaders within the evolving specialty.

Though it is not required to have a letter from a radiologist, it is suggested.  Initial interviews will take place late October, with possible additional interview dates pending.
