Integrated IR residency

IR training option for medical students 

Integrated IR residency and the NRMP Main Match

The integrated IR residency is five-years in length (a total of six years of post-graduate training with the required internship year). This IR training format is available to medical students. The residency curriculum is concentrated on diagnostic radiology in the first three years and interventional radiology in the last two years.  

Medical students enter into the integrated IR residency through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) Main Match. Integrated IR residency programs may offer Advanced-A postions (most integrated IR positions will be Advanced-A), Categorical-C positons, and/or Physician-R postions (few, if any, Physician-R positions will be offered each year). For more information about the Main Match and the types of positions offered, please visit the  NRMP website.  A Main Residency Match Calendar for Applicants is also available.

Graduates of the integrated IR residency qualify to take the IR/DR examination offered by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The IR/DR certificate recognizes competency in both diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. For more information, please visit the ABR website
