Interventional Radiology Integrated Residency


The UCI Health School of Medicine Department of Radiological Sciences offers a five-year residency training program in interventional radiology through our integrated program. The first three years focus on diagnostic radiology and the last two years focus on interventional radiology. Graduates will be eligible for dual board certification in IR/DR.

Resident training is conducted primarily at the UC Irvine Medical Center and the Long Beach VA, supplemented by rotations in Pediatric Radiology at CHOC Children's.

UC Irvine Medical Center, located in the heart of Orange County, is home to the county's only Level I trauma center, its only nationally designated comprehensive cancer center, and a modern acute care hospital. The spacious Department of Radiological Sciences houses state-of-the-art equipment including newly redesigned reading rooms, modern angio/interventional suites, and brand-new computers running the latest in PACS/dictation software. Didactic conferences are held in the department’s state-of-the-art conference room.

The VA Long Beach Medical Center, a 421-bed medical facility located in beautiful Long Beach, CA, is an integral component of resident education, boasting freshly remodeled reading rooms and a new completely redesigned angio/interventional suite. Exceptional faculty, quality didactic conferences, and a community-based patient population at the VA strengthen resident education and broaden residents’ clinical exposure.

As a whole, our program is resident-centered and offers an exceptionally well-rounded training experience designed to prepare residents for careers in either academic radiology or private practice, all in an amazing location.
