Current Residents LINK

The Emory University School of Medicine Division of Interventional Radiology and Image-Guided Medicine (Emory IR) offers the following IR residency programs for interested applicants:

  • Interventional Radiology - Integrated (IRI) LINK
    • Sample chart of schedule breakdown for PGY1-PGY6 LINK
  • Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) LINK
  • Independent Interventional Radiology Residency LINK
    • Sample chart of schedule breakdown for PGY1-PGY7 LINK

Emory IR also offers diagnostic radiology residents exposure to world-class faculty. The Emory IR faculty are committed to providing an experience for all radiology residents that promotes excellence in clinical care beyond pure competency. Residents use their clinical skills developed on IR and non-IR rotations to understand better the value-added role of radiologist in the clinical decision-making process, anticipating the clinical course of patients and not just seeing them as images on a monitor.

Transitional Radiology Program

Interventional Radiology rotations include:

  • Emory University Hospital Midtown
  • Emory University Hospital
  • Grady Memorial Hospital
  • Veterans Administration Hospital
  • Emory St. Joseph's Hospital
  • Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
  • Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU, multisite)
  • Rotations in Surgical Oncology, Vascular Surgery, Vascular Medicine, Vascular Lab, Hematology-Oncology

Research opportunities for residents are available. Residents have presented scientific oral abstracts and case studies on the podium and have had posters displayed at major medical meetings including but not limited to: Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE), American College of Radiology (ACR), Association of University Radiologists (AUR), Vascular Interventional Advances (VIVA), International Society of Endovascular Therapy (ISET), World Conference on Interventional Oncology (WCIO) and more. Residents have also been involved in several publications from Emory IR.


One of the most unique aspects of training in Interventional Radiology at Emory involves the opportunity for a resource-rich collaborative university environment. Emory IR has integrated innovation into the lecture series. Residents learn about disclosure and the regulatory process, believing that training future physician-innovators is critical to serving as pioneers of new endovascular and minimally invasive image-guided procedures. Emory trainees and faculty have worked closely with students and faculty at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), a joint initiative of Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology. Senior Capstone Design BME teams have been mentored by Emory IR. The Capstone Design Exposition at Georgia Tech, held biannually, is the largest of its kind in the world and Emory IR projects have been presented at international meetings such as Innovations in Cardiovascular Interventions (ICI), Design of Medical Devices (DMD) and the Southeastern Medical Device Association (SEMDA). In addition, the Coulter Center provides grand-supported graduate level collaboration on complex BME projects.


Emory IR offers its own animal laboratory on the Emory University campus. In addition, Emory University also provides world-class collaboration with several university-based and affiliated entities including:

  • Emory University School of Medicine
  • The Atlanta Clinical Translational Institute
  • Georgia Research Alliance
  • T3 Labs (world-class animal facility)
  • Global Center for Medical Innovation
  • Centers for Disease Control
  • Emory University Rollins School of Public Health
  • Emory University School of Nursing
  • Emory University School of Law
    • TI:GER Program (integration of law students into BME innovation teams)
  • Emory University Goizuetta School of Business
  • Emory University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
