Independent IR residency vacant positions

Program: University of South Florida, Tampa General Hospital 

Reason for opening: The University of South Florida, Tampa General Hospital independent IR residency received its ACGME accreditation after the deadline to participate in the 2020 Match cycle. We are currently participating in the IR Independent Match for 2021. Our GME office is allowing us to retro our new accreditation to accommodate the upcoming academic year outside of the Match.

USF is recruiting for an independent IR residency position to start July 1, 2020. The program will accept applications from both ESIR applicants and non-ESIR applicants. 

Education will take place at a single site, Tampa General Hospital, a tertiary referral hospital with over 1,000 beds and offers every surgical specialty, busy transplant service, and a Level I trauma center. The interventional radiology program covers all aspects of interventional radiology including interventional oncology, complex venous intervention, IVC filter retrieval, peripheral vascular intervention, women’s health interventions and TIPS/peritransplant intervention.  IR volume is high as we average more than 30 procedures daily not including non-tunneled central line or PICC access.

There are seven full time VIR attendings, IR residents, and three physician extenders (ARNP/PA). AAA/TEVAR and Endoleaks are performed with cooperation with IR and vascular surgery in a hybrid room in the OR. We run seven IR suites daily, five with Cone-Beam CT technology and two biplane rooms. Attendings are all part of a hybrid, private practice and academic group.
