Interventional Radiology (IR/DR) Residency

Dr. Kelvin Hong, director of Interventional Radiology at Johns Hopkins

For students interested in interventional radiology, Johns Hopkins has received ACGME approval and implemented Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) training, so that residents can begin their IR/DR training in the first year. We will also offer both Integrated and Independent tracks, with ACGME approval in process. The program is committed to providing residents with every possible means of training in IR/DR for those who decide to pursue interventional radiology after the first year, as well as the flexibility to select a different pathway if they discover that they prefer a diagnostic radiology subspecialty or molecular imaging.

Interventional radiology training includes exposure to a wide breadth and high volume of life-saving interventional vascular and oncologic procedures, as well as cutting-edge interventional treatments performed only at select highly experienced medical centers. In addition, residents learn how to image complicated vascular pathology using state-of-the-art scanners and protocols, critical to guiding interventional management. Johns Hopkins residents typically interpret more than 500 CT and MR angiography examinations by the end of their four years in diagnostic training.
