IR/DR: Interventional and diagnostic radiology residency track
The UC Davis Interventional Radiology- Integrated residency program is designed around a comprehensive curriculum offering opportunities for experience in all aspects of diagnostic radiology as well as interventional procedures and peri-procedural care via a full service interventional radiology consultation service and clinic practice.
During the first 3 years of the program (IR1-IR3), residents rotate primarily through the various sections of the diagnostic radiology residency program, typically receiving approximately 3 months of IR experience throughout 3 years. During the IR4 and IR5 years, residents will primarily rotate through the interventional radiology services at UC Davis Medical Center, Kaiser South Sacramento and the Mather VA.
Graduates of the IR-integrated residency program are qualified to sit for the IR/DR examination offered by the American Board of Radiology to receive the IR/DR certificate, recognizing competence in both diagnostic and interventional radiology. Certificate holders may practice both diagnostic and interventional radiology.
