Vascular / Interventional Fellowship Program

Our fellowship program will be sunsetting (close) June 30, 2020.  We will be recruiting for the Interventional Radiology Residency-Independent starting December 2019.  All applications must be submitted through ERAS. We will be participating in the NRMP for 2 IR-Independent positions.  The new program will start on July 1, 2020.  All IR Independent Applicants from ESIR programs must submit supplemental documents.  Those documents must be submitted by current program director or program coordinator.  Required documents are a letter of acceptance to the ESIR track and a rotation summary for R1-R4 years.  Documents can be submitted here. 

ESIR Supplemental Document Submission

The University of New Mexico Radiology Department provides robust Interventional Radiology experience to its Interventional Radiology fellows, with the most advanced interventional therapies in the state. The scope of Interventional Radiology (IR) services offered supports our NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center (the highest designation achievable) and Level I Trauma service (at the only Level I Trauma Center in New Mexico).

The UNM Radiology Department maintains a busy Interventional Radiology service, providing care to both inpatients and outpatients at UNM Hospital.  Our physician staff includes 5 subspecialty-trained Interventional Radiologists, a Neurointerventional Radiologist, and Neurosurgeons who perform Neurointerventional procedures, along with Nurse Practitioners who perform image-guided vascular access.  Procedures performed at our institution span the spectrum of IR, including advanced cancer therapeutics. 

In addition, our hospital system has recently opened an IR service at our branch facility, the Sandoval Regional Medical Center (SRMC), which is staffed daily by one of our IR faculty.  In any given day, typically 3-4 procedure rooms operate simultaneously at UNMH, with 1 at SRMC.  We maintain a busy on-call service at the main hospital, with emergent IR on-call coverage provided 24/7 by IR faculty and nursing/technologist staff in conjunction with a DR resident or IR fellow.

The Interventional Radiology (IR) fellowship is ACGME accredited and accepts one fellow annually. The fellow performs a wide range of procedures in both vascular and nonvascular interventions including biopsies, percutaneous fluid drainages, biliary interventions, angioplasty, thrombolysis, stents, TIPS and oncologic interventions (chemoembolization, radiofrequency ablation and Y-90 microspheres).
