Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers a one-year ACGME-approved fellowship in vascular interventional radiology that prepares trainees for subspecialty certification in interventional radiology. Fellows are exposed to the full range of vascular and nonvascular interventions, spending 75 percent of their training time at Memorial Sloan Kettering and 25 percent of their time at Weill Cornell Medical College/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
At Memorial Sloan Kettering, trainees work with 13 faculty interventional radiologists in state-of-the-art facilities, including three combined angiography-CT suites, two fluoroscopy suites (a third is under construction), one conventional CT suite, one interventional MRI suite, and an interventional PET-CT suite. Participation in our busy clinic teaches outpatient evaluation and management skills.
The service supports a research portfolio of clinical trials, and clinical and basic science research. Our small-animal imaging and intervention research facility is outfitted with state-of-the-art fluoroscopy and CT equipment. Fellows who choose this track receive a broad foundation in VIR with special focus in oncologic interventions.
