Your call schedule is different for each rotation. Mayo Clinic follows the recommendations of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Clinical conferences, seminars, small discussion groups, journal clubs, and one-on-one instruction are integral parts of this residency.
Extensive research opportunities and facilities are available through Mayo Clinic's Department of Radiology. You are encouraged to participate in research projects with the consulting staff. This includes opportunities for clinical studies and laboratory-based projects.
Trainees are assigned an adviser from the department, as determined by the residency committee. This assignment is based on your research interest. The adviser may be changed during the residency, at the option of the committee.
Individual research projects require advocacy and supervision by a staff member of the Department of Radiology (usually, but not always the adviser). In general, written plans for individual projects are submitted to the department research committee for assistance.
The program objective is that most research projects will yield results that are suitable for presentation at scientific meetings and for publication in peer-reviewed literature. Research projects are to be presented to the department at the conclusion of the residency.
Opportunities are available for you to teach students from Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine and visiting students from other medical schools through daily clinical work and formal didactic lectures.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop the appropriate technical skills to meet program expectations, your performance is monitored carefully during the Interventional Radiology Independent Residency. You are formally evaluated by supervising faculty members after each clinical rotation and meet with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you regularly evaluate the faculty to confirm that your educational needs are being met.
