Fellowships

Research Fellowship

The fellowship for interventional research has been very popular, particularly among interventionalists from abroad. Interventionalists from Austria, Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Korea, Turkey and the USA have participated.

The fellows spend from two months to two years performing closely supervised research in the Dotter Research Laboratory. On their non-research days, they attend clinical conferences and observe clinical cases. The majority of visiting fellows have written papers summarizing their work, with subsequent publication in peer review journals.

Clinical Fellowship

Long-term clinical fellowship training consists of four, one- to two-year positions in vascular and interventional radiology (VIR). The two-year fellowship includes six months of interventional research. Altogether, 75 vascular and interventional fellows have graduated from the Institute's program since 1990. The VIR fellowship is accredited by the ACGME (American Council of Graduate Medical Education).

Admission to the long-term clinical fellowship program has been very competitive. The vascular and interventional radiology program annually receives more than 100 applications from radiologists. A review committee selects at least 20 applicants for personal interviews. Interviews will begin in March and end in May. Match day is in June when the best candidates are selected. Almost half of the graduates of both the Institute's clinical fellowship programs have entered practice at academic teaching institutions.

Fellowship applications should be submitted to AAMC - Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) in the fall.
