Rotations


 


Our curriculum is divided into rotations of four week blocks of time. The curriculum for each block is tailored to the resident’s level of training and experience. See below for a breakdown of our rotation distribution by year.

Those residents who are in the Clinical IR/DR pathway will use some of their elective time and mini fellowship time to gain clinical exposure relevant to the practice of interventional radiology including additional months of IR rotation and rotations through clinical services such as Oncology, Vascular Surgery, or Hepatology amongst others.

Our ED shift covers the Emergency Department from 4pm – 2 am Monday through Friday. Our Night Float shift covers the Emergency Department from 8pm – 7 am Sunday through Friday. The ED and Night Float residents work closely with our in house dedicated ED attending faculty who provide support and supervision while providing final reads overnight.

Our residents are given 30 days of time for research projects that can be taken in 1 day increments. While on a research day the resident is excused from other clinical duties and these days can be taken at any time throughout the four year residency (and is in addition to our yearly conference time and vacation time). This allows our residents to take days to prepare and perform research projects as needed throughout their residency.
