Transcript of IR Residency

Changing Landscape:
IR Residency

Independent IR Residency
Medical students
enter DR residency
1 year internship (e.g. preliminary, transitional, surgery)
4 years of DR residency at one institution (PGY2-5)
apply to Independent IR Residency
Residents enter post-completion of a DR residency
2 years of IR training (PGY6-7) at same or different institution
Think of it as a 2 year ‘fellowship’
: Early Specialization in IR (ESIR)
Evolution of IR Training
Interventional radiology (IR) began to evolve into a more specialized field with the accreditation of IR fellowships by the ACGME in the 1990's
Traditional IR Training Model
Traditionally, to become an interventional radiologist, one has to complete:
1 year internship
4 year Diagnostic Radiology (DR) residency
1 year Interventional Radiology (IR) fellowship
Impetus for Change
Why IR Residency?

Embracing role as clinicians
Recognizing need to provide supplementary training in non-procedural patient care

Broad scope of procedures
Inadequacy of 1-year fellowship

Proposal Accepted!
, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved Interventional Radiology as a primary specialty in medicine (e.g. Internal Medicine, Surgery)
No longer a sub-specialty (e.g. Cardiology, Neuroradiology)
Sunset date on IR fellowships is June 30, 2020
, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved the formation of a new residency training program in Interventional Radiology
Structure of IR Residency
Two "paths"
1. Integrated IR Residency
2. Independent IR Residency

Let's get started!
Integrated IR Residency
Medical students directly apply to Integrated IR Residency via NRMP
1 year internship (e.g. preliminary, transitional, surgery)
3 years of DR (33 DR + 3 IR)
2 years IR-focused (21 IR + 3 ICU/DR)
1 year internship + 3 years DR + 2 years IR
As of October 2016, 61 institutions have been accredited for the Integrated IR Residency.
1 year internship + 4 years DR Residency + 2 years Independent IR Residency
Nationwide launch date for the new Independent IR residency is July 1, 2020. ACGME accreditation of the traditional one-year subspecialty fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR) will cease on this date.
Option for DR residents with early interest in IR
May be offered at various DR programs
Allows residents to complete 12 IR or IR-related rotations during their 4-year DR residency
Prepares residents with sufficient IR training to qualify for advanced entry into an abridged one-year Independent IR residency (PGY6)
As of October 2016, 41 institutions have received approval of their ESIR programs.
Two "Paths" of IR Residency

Independent IR Residency

+/- Early Specialization in IR (ESIR)
6 years total
6 years total
7 years total
You did it!
Graduates of an IR residency obtain an
IR/DR certificate
, recognizing competency in both interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology.
Importance of clinical competency in IR
Practice of IR has become more complex
