Procedural Training

Most procedures are performed by residents according to modality, rather than by interventional radiology. This allows the residents constant exposure to procedures throughout their training.  Also, there are no radiology fellowship positions, allowing the residents to have access to all procedures performed in the department.  Residents become proficient at all basic image guided procedures (biopsies (both US and CT guided), drainages (thoracentesis/paracentesis/drain catheter placement), lumbar puncture, thyroid FNA, fluoroscopy (GI/GU studies and arthrograms), etc. The Interventional Radiology block primarily focuses on vascular intervention with a large volume of AFR and venogram cases, along with residents performing IR lite procedures (PICC and HD catheter placement (tunneled and temporary)).

 

Didactics & Conferences

Daily noon conferences that consist of attending driven lectures, case conferences, and occasional video lecture from recent annual educational conferences. Monthly journal club is performed with attending oversight.  Monthly radiology/orthopedics inter-departmental case conferences are done with MSK faculty reviewing the cases with the MSK resident.  Interdepartmental Orthopedic imaging lectures with the Orthopedics residency performed by our MSK faculty every three months.  Quarterly radiology/surgery inter-departmental case conferences with imaging and intraoperative review.  Quarterly radiology department morbidity/mortality conference.

 

Medical Student Clerkship

This clerkship is conducted under the supervision of the Chairperson of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and the Associate Dean for Clinical Education. The Chairperson, or his/her designee, will assign the immediate supervisor(s) for each student or group of students. Student activities will be coordinated to combine didactic and practical instruction to optimize educational opportunities.

 

Rotating medical students will expand their radiology knowledge by working alongside residents and attending physicians daily, as well as completing assigned reading and participation in daily noon conferences. Students will also prepare a lecture to be given to the residents upon completion of the rotation.

 

Should there be questions regarding the conduct, objectives or content of the clerkship, please contact the Diagnostic Radiology Program Coordinator.
