Interventional Integrated Radiology (IR/DR) Residency Program
Our mission is to serve the people of Kansas, the region and the nation in enhancing the health and well-being of vascular and interventional radiology patients, families and communities by providing the highest quality, patient-centered, efficient and effective care through comprehensive integrated clinical practice, education, and research.
The University of Kansas Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR) faculty consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to train and develop future vascular and interventional radiologists. Within our training program, we value hands on experience and are committed to having our trainees performing cases directly with the VIR faculty. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."
The University of Kansas Health System is a large regional tertiary center and we have several distinguishing features of our program. We provide the full spectrum of VIR procedures including but not limited to interventional oncology, heptobiliary, geniturinary, gastrointestinal, venothromboemblic disease, etc. KU VIR is a core member of the KU multidisciplinary vascular program. Our trainees learn advanced peripheral arterial interventions and venous insufficiency within the VIR section as well as dedicated rotations in vascular surgery and vascular medicine.
Our VIR faculty recognize that VIR's may be asked to provide neurointerventional procedures in their future practice. This is why we have integrated neurotinterventional radiology (NIR) rotations for our trainees within our busy NIR section. Here you will spend time with our highly experienced and skilled NIR faculty performing stroke intervention, vertebroplasty, carotid stenting, etc.
Our current one year fellows log over 2000 cases per year, and our program is only growing. We offer 1 interventional radiology/diagnostic radiology (IR/DR), 2 early specialization in interventional radiology (ESIR), and 2 independent pathway (two year and one year options) positions. Our interview days are coordinated with the University of Kansas Diagnostic Radiology program to help facilitate applicants applying to multiple programs.
