We participate in the Vascular/Interventional Radiology Fellowship Match administered by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). Applications are accepted beginning November 1st through mid-February. Typically, candidate interviews begin in late winter/early spring with the applicant's program rankings due early summer. Our program is certified to accept up to five fellows per year.

The division performs approximately 15,000 procedures on 6,000 patients per year.  We have 7 dedicated peripheral angiography suites and share access to a hybrid angio-MRI (IMRIS) room. In addition, we have our own admitting and consultation service and outpatient clinic.

Radiology residents who want to begin a fellowship immediately following the completion of their residency should apply in the late fall/early winter of their 3rd year of radiology residency. Minimum qualifications for the fellowship include successful completion of an accredited four-year diagnostic radiology residency and board certification by the ABR or equivalent, and the ability to obtain a license to practice medicine in Virginia. A personal interview is required unless exceptional circumstances warrant.
