Training Highlights

The VIR Division performs over 15,000 cases at the University Hospital, Frankel Cardiovascular Center, C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital, and the Ann Arbor VA Medical Center. We consistently ranked as one of the top Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology Integrated Residencies and Departments in the country.

While on IR, trainees are actively involved as primary operators, inpatient consultation, and outpatient clinics.

  • Access and participation in non-invasive vascular lab (500 examinations required as a prerequisite for RPVI)
Venous Disease
  • Complex venous disease and reconstruction
  • Acute DVT thrombectomy and thrombolysis
  • Acute PE thrombectomy and thrombolysis, PERT Interventional Team
  • Complex IVC filter retrieval

Pediatric Interventions

I chose Michigan because there are few other places where you’ll receive the same breadth and depth of training. Between the thousand-bed University, dedicated Pediatric, and associated Veteran Affairs Hospitals we diagnose and treat the entire gamut of IR-related conditions on a weekly basis. Once I saw that a TACE, port placement, then aortic fenestration was just a usual day for a trainee I was sold!

I chose to train at the University of Michigan because of its excellent surgery and diagnostic radiology training as well as its unparalleled IR service line, which performs a wide variety of arterial, venous, IO, hepatic, and renal interventions.
