The Interventional Radiology Division offers four positions per year in its ACGME approved fellowship program. The section, which is staffed by five faculty members, performs procedures on about 6000 patients per year. Our Heart and Vascular center features four state-of-the-art Siemens angiographic suites with the latest in CT technology, including a dual-source CT scanner capable of performing high resolution volumetric imaging for vascular imaging and cardiac imaging. Applications for our 2018/19 program will be accepted via ERAS from December 1 - December 30. You can find the link here: https://www.aamc.org/students/medstudents/eras/fellowship_applicants/
Prerequisite education for entry into the program includes the satisfactory completion of a diagnostic radiology residency program accredited by the ACGME or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Osteopathic (D.O.) physicians should have completed a diagnostic radiology residency program accredited by the AOA. You will also need to complete USMLE steps 1, 2 and 3 in order to be eligible for our program. You will need to provide three recommendation letters and a standard application form.
Our program participates in the NRMP Match. The sub-specialty match information can be found on the NRMP website: http://www.nrmp.org.
Our 2016/2017 Fellows are Dr. Laura Barnes, Dr. Kurtis Mauer, Dr. Rachel Nelson, and Dr. Robert Whittaker. To learn more about our present and past fellows, click here.
Alternately, MUSC has received ACGME accreditation for the integrated IR/DR residency program. We will accept applications during the fall of 2016-17 academic year for two integrated IR/DR residency spots, to match in the spring of 2017. Our plan is for these two matched residents to complete an internship (PGY-1) in Surgery at MUSC during the 2017-18 academic year.
We have also been approved for Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR). ESIR will include three years of full-time clinical radiology experience including the standard three months of IR during PGY-2 through PGY-4 years. The PGY-5 year will include an ICU month along with nine months of IR resulting in 12 months of IR during the R1-R4 years of residency. The PGY-6 year will then be dedicated to IR.
Residents who have matched into Diagnostic Radiology will have the opportunity to pursue IR/DR by applying for ESIR during residency. Our training curriculum meets all the requirements for the new dual certificate residency, including outpatient clinics and an inpatient consult service.
