Independent Interventional Radiology Residency Program

About the Independent Interventional Radiology Residency Program

The Independent IR residency program has replaced the IR fellowship as the option for subspecialized IR training after completion of a diagnostic radiology residency. PGY-4 DR residents may apply to the residency through ERAS with the match taking place the following spring and eventual matriculation occurs after completion of the PGY-5 year. UCSF will accept up to 4 Independent Residents per year.

Educational Program

The Independent Residency is either a one or two-year training program. DR residents that complete a certified Early Specialization in IR (ESIR) curriculum during their DR residency are eligible for a 1-year Independent Residency. An ESIR curriculum includes completion of 500 procedures and 8 months of IR (or IR related) rotations in the PGY-5 year plus an ICU rotation. DR residents that do not complete an ESIR curriculum during their residency are eligible for a 2-year Independent Residency. UCSF’s Independent IR Residency program includes IR rotations at 3 campuses (Moffitt-Long, Mission Bay and Mt. Zion) as well as rotations on the Vascular Surgery service and in the IR clinic.

IR Faculty

The IR faculty consists of seven full-time Interventional Radiologists under the direction of Dr. Maureen Kohi, the IR section chief and Evan Lehrman, the IR residency program director.
