Visiting Tutorial Program
The interventional radiology visiting tutorial program, under the direction
of Dr. Frederick Keller, offers short-term (one to three-weeks)
visiting fellowships in Interventional Radiology. Designed
for individuals who
already possess basic catheter skills, but who wish to
expand on their practices, these fellowships encompass
the entire spectrum of interventional
radiology, including both vascular and nonvascular procedures.
In the last thirteen years, 93 interventionalists have
participated in this program:
71 from the United States, 8 from Hong Kong, 4 from
the United Kingdom, 4 from Australia, 2 from Canada,
and 1 each from Columbia, India, Italy,
Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Sweden.
The visiting tutorial program can be tailored to meet each individual's
needs and includes observations of clinical cases, participation
in daily clinical conferences and didactic sessions, as
well as informal discussions in
both the clinical sessions and laboratory. Six clinical
interventional faculty are available for both formal and
informal didactic teaching sessions
with the fellows and are able to give individualized attention
to specific clinical, procedural, and technical questions.
Fellows can also elect to have supervised "hands-on" training in the Dotter
Research Laboratory, during which they can practice some
techniques of their own interest- from TIPS to embolization
techniques or percutaneous
nonvascular interventions- at their own pace.
Fellowship dates are available by individual arrangement. This fellowship is approved for Category 1 CME credit.
