Training Pathways

OHSU offers training in interventional radiology through several pathways, including the integrated IR residency, the independent IR residency, and the independent IR residency with Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR). The traditional path through diagnostic radiology with IR fellowship is no longer offered

Offered to medical students (up to 2 positions per year at OHSU)

Offered to graduates of U.S. diagnostic radiology residencies (up to 4 positions per year at OHSU).  The IR-Independent program, while usually two years in duration, will also be offered as a one-year program to trainees who have successfully completed an ESIR track at their home institutions.

Offered to current OHSU diagnostic radiology residents, which, when completed, will allow trainees to enter into a one-year IR-Independent training program.

Graduates of our programs qualify to take the IR/DR examination offered by the American Board of Radiology (ABR).

For more information regarding the structure of each training pathway, visit the Society of Interventional Radiology IR residency webpage.

Please note, we do not offer integrated PGY-1 internship clinical training with our IR programs, and applicants must apply separately.
