Residents and Fellows
Residents and fellows entering our program will benefit on multiple fronts:
- Large patient volume and diverse cases
You will be exposed to a full spectrum of care and high volume of many types of cases.
- Different perspectives on procedures
You may see the same procedure accomplished different ways by our large and diverse faculty
- Excellent clinical training
You will learn how to clinically manage patients so that you will be comfortable managing your own clinical service and taking direct referrals. You will understand how to run a clinic, perform consultations, admit patients and communicate with referring physicians.
Training is diverse and extensive with approximately 30,000 procedures performed annually. The vascular and nonvascular practice encompasses the entire spectrum of interventional radiology and has seven dedicated C-arm suites in Barnes-Jewish Hospital and one at St. Louis Children's Hospital, all with digital capability. Separate clinic facilities are used for outpatient consultation and follow-up visits. An active academic program is in place, with ongoing vascular and nonvascular projects. The teaching conferences include a didactic lecture series in interventional radiology, journal club, morbidity/mortality conferences, teaching case conferences, and multidisciplinary conferences.
The fellowship program is certified by the ACGME, and graduates are eligible for the certificate of added qualification (CAQ) examination given by the American Board of Radiology. At program completion, trainees are prepared either for an academic or a private practice career in interventional radiology.
