The Department of Radiology at the University of California, San Diego, offers a one-year clinical fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology. The goal of the Vascular and Interventional fellowship program is to provide clinical training and practical experience in the field of vascular imaging and interventions. Upon graduation, fellows are able to perform and function independently as interventional radiologists.
The fellowship provides training in routine and complex vascular and non-vascular interventions using state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to clinical responsibilities, our fellows are expected to assist in teaching of residents and medical students, present conferences and participate in research.
UC San Diego Health System is San Diego’s only academic health system and includes the UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest, and UC San Diego Medical Center Thornton, Moores Cancer Center, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center and Jacobs Medical Center (opening in 2016) in La Jolla.
