Overview

Program description

The five-year Interventional Radiology Integrated Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, is designed to prepare physicians for careers in academic radiology or private practice.

The program offers:

  • Ample, high-quality, hands-on clinical and procedural experience
  • Solid academic instruction
  • Multiple clinical research training options
  • Gradually increasing independence and responsibility throughout the residency

Mayo's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population, and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. Our emphasis on education over service ensures that you have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during your residency.

Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, is a destination medical center. The interventional radiology division offers high-level care with a strong presence in interventional oncology and transplantation. Approximately 6,000 minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are provided each year by six board-certified interventional radiologists in a modern facility with six interventional suites. A modern outpatient clinic exclusively dedicated to the interventional radiology (IR) division supports a thriving consultation practice and allows for longitudinal care of IR patients.

Interventional oncology is well-established as an integral component of cancer management across specialties at the Jacksonville campus of Mayo Clinic. Locoregional therapies include, but are not limited to, a full spectrum of transarterial, transvenous and percutaneous ablative therapies. The interventional radiology division also provides vascular imaging services that include CT angiography, MR angiography and vascular ultrasound.

After successfully completing the Interventional Radiology Integrated Residency, you will be a highly qualified interventional radiologist ready for private or academic practice.

Accreditation

The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Certification

Graduates of the Interventional Radiology Integrated Residency qualify to take the Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology (IR/DR) examination offered by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). Since the IR/DR certificate recognizes competency in both diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology, certificate holders can practice both diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology.

Program history

The American Board of Medical Specialties approved the American Board of Radiology request for a primary certification of interventional radiology in September 2014. The intent of the integrated residency in vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) is to focus the training experience in the clinical diagnosis and care of patients with diseases commonly treated by an interventional radiologist.

The Interventional Radiology Integrated Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida was approved in 2016. We anticipate that one trainee will complete this program annually.
