Integrated IR Residency
This five-year program begins at the PGY-2 level after a one-year accredited clinical internship. The first three years of the program focus on diagnostic radiology followed by two years of IR training. While MIR does not require a surgical internship, there is an option of jointly ranking a preliminary surgery position at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
MIR accepts two applicants per year, matched into the program from medical school. Graduates will be eligible to sit for exams and be board-certified in diagnostic and interventional radiology.
Residents rotate through three hospitals during training: Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, receiving comprehensive exposure to the full scope of diagnostic and interventional radiology.
Residents will also rotate in the SICU during PGY 5 year, unless they have the need or desire to rotate through another ICU (MICU, PICU or NeuroICU). They will also rotate on the vascular surgery service during their PGY 6 year. MIR has a collaborative relationship with the vascular surgeons.
During their first three years, Integrated IR residents will attend all conferences provided by the diagnostic radiology services. During their last two years, IR residents will attend DX conferences when they are rotating on DX services, and IR conferences when they are rotating on IR service. IR specific conferences include:
- Quality and safety every other Tuesday morning
- IR didactic every Wednesday morning
- Hepatobiliary interdisciplinary every Thursday morning
- A mixture of case conference, journal club and interventional oncology every Friday morning
MIR offers countless opportunities to participate in mentored radiology research that results in national meeting presentations and publication in major journals. First and second year residents are reimbursed for one meeting each academic year up to a maximum of $1,750. MIR will reimburse third and fourth year residents for more than one meeting each academic year up to a maximum of $2,500.
Residents who obtain full Missouri medical licensure and are ACLS certified are eligible to participate in moonlighting opportunities within the Department of Radiology by providing physician coverage of contrast injections at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Moonlighting opportunities may be performed by residents in good standing with program director approval beginning their R2 year. (All liscensure costs incurred are paid by the resident; the department will not reimburse these expenses.)”

Supplemental ERAS application
For the 2024 ERAS cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.
In its third year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.
The supplemental ERAS application provides:
- geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting);
- information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
- program signals.
