Meet the Faculty

The Stanford Interventional Radiology Residency Program is a 6-year ACGME accredited categorical program that integrates 1 year of surgical internship, 3 years of diagnostic radiology (DR), and 2 final years of dedicated interventional radiology (IR) training. After completing residency, graduates will qualify to obtain a dual IR-DR certificate from the American Board of Radiology.

The Stanford Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology is a tertiary and quaternary referral center that accepts complex cases from around the country and around the world, ensuring that our trainees are exposed to a broad and intriguing case mix. In addition to advanced specialty training at Stanford University Medical Center, the residency program integrates clinical training across multiple sites and disciplines including the Palo Alto VA Hospital, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, outpatient Interventional Radiology Clinics, multidisciplinary clinical electives and a dedicated Cardiovascular ICU rotation.

Stanford IR is renowned for its long history of outstanding patient care, world-renowned research, and an exceptional training experience. We offer a robust educational curriculum spanning the full spectrum of image-guided interventions and beyond, including cutting-edge protocols and treatments pioneered by Stanford Interventional Radiology.
