Independent IR residency vacant positions

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Program, Iowa City

The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) has an unexpected opening for the independent IR residency starting on July 1, 2021. The IR training at UIHC provides a strong emphasis on clinical care and procedural training at a leading academic institution that will prepare the trainee for practice in either private or academic settings. The University of Iowa is approved by the ACGME for the Independent IR Residency, Integrated IR Residency and Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR). UIHC is a leading busy tertiary care hospital and level-1 trauma center, an American Cancer Society Center of Excellence, and a major transplantation center. Trainees will thus be exposed to broad spectrum of cases in interventional oncology, vascular disease, GI, GU, women’s health and pediatric interventions.The program has a very active clinical service, several outpatient clinics, and an inpatient service with active participation by all IR trainees, physician assistants, and nurse coordinators. The program focus is to combine imaging expertise with not only technical skills, but also clinical skills. Trainees are involved in all aspects of patient care including image interpretation, evaluation of new patients, procedures, inpatient and outpatient care, and patient follow-up. In addition, there are many opportunities to be involved in research and participate in multidisciplinary boards (such as tumor boards).

Procedural Training Offered:

  • Interventional Oncology including radioembolization, chemoembolization, and percutaneous ablations.
  • Peripheral arterial interventions including angioplasty, stent placement, and thrombectomy
  • Arterial and venous thrombolysis
  • Transplant intervention

  • Lymphangiography and thoracic duct embolization

A unique feature of the program is the close rapport between IR and vascular surgery, allowing the fellow to be closely involved in many aspects of peripheral arterial disease diagnosis and management. The independent resident will have a 1-month rotation on vascular surgery, further enriching their experience in vascular care, including exposure to vascular interventions, carotid stenting and endovascular aneurysm repair. A new state-of-the art Children’s Hospital with robust Pediatric Interventional Radiology service, and multidisciplinary vascular anomaly clinic.
