Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR)
We have been approved by ACGME for up to 3 residents in our Early Subspecialization in IR (ESIR) pathway. This option is designed for our diagnostic radiology residents who begin their residencies undecided or wish to consider the possibility of training in a different location in their last year of IR training. Almost all of our ESIR residents have chosen to stay at Stanford for their independent IR year.
16-month Pathway to Subspecialty Certification in Nuclear Medicine
Each year, we have 1-2 residents who complete the 16-month pathway to specialty certification in Diagnostic Radiology and subspecialty certification in Nuclear Medicine. Residents in their fourth year spend the majority of their time in the Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging department where they learn all aspects of basic sciences, diagnostics and therapy as they relate to Nuclear Medicine. These residents may choose to complete additional fellowship training in another subspecialty of radiology or conclude their training and enter into professional practice.
