GW offers one to two ACGME-accredited independent radiology residency positions in Vascular and Interventional Radiology as well as one integrated interventional radiology position per year. The strength of our program lies not only in our breadth and scope of (IR) practice but also in our training of residents to be IR clinicians. Our division has a close working relationship with Interventional Cardiology, Cardiothoracic surgery, and General and Vascular Surgery and also partakes in numerous multi-disciplinary conferences with them as well as Thoracic and Gastroenterology Tumor Board. The division performs a high volume of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures per year.
Interventional radiology residents have first-hand training in the work-up, diagnosis, and treatment of peripheral arterial and venous disease including thoracic and abdominal aortic stent grafts, limb salvage, and DVT thrombolysis. In addition to peripheral arterial disease, the residents have extensive exposure to percutaneous genitourinary procedures, biliary procedures, IVC filters, thrombolysis, venous access, embolotherapy, TIPS, aortic stent grafts, pain management, PE management, and interventional oncology (Y90, chemoembolization, ablation). We have two dedicated peripheral angiography suites and one biplane neuro interventional suite. The resident will also have dedicated time in pediatric interventional radiology at the world renowned Children's National Medical Center.
In addition to extensive interventional radiology exposure, the residents will have dedicated neuro-interventional time, which includes cerebral angiography, carotid stenting, and stroke intervention. In addition, he or she will become proficient in pain management as well as spine interventions.
