Introduction

BMC is excited to offer comprehensive training in interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology through its integrated IR/DR residency.  Facilities and equipment are state of the art.  Training is comprehensive, including trauma, dialysis, vascular, biliary, portal hypertension, non-vascular intervention, interventional oncology and neurointerventional procedures.  Clinical care and longitudinal follow-up are stressed.  Trainees run the clinical service supported by 3 full time PAs and 5 IR attendings.

Program’s Mission

Boston Medical Center, the sponsoring institution, has the following mission statement: Exceptional care, without exception. The department of Radiology, embodies the same mission by providing care regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, language, or socioeconomic status. Our residencies pride themselves in remaining focused on the patient and showing sensitivity to all aspects of diversity. Many quality improvement projects completed by residents focus on issues relating to our underserved patient population. Resident well-being encompasses many aspects of our training program, from design of effective educational interventions, provision of meaningful and timely feedback, provision of clinical support when needed while allowing residents to perform at their highest appropriate level of independence and listening to resident feedback and instituting changes based on thoughtful communication. Only through an ongoing dialog can we continue to improve.

Program Aim

Our residency program’s major aim is to produce graduates who are outstanding diagnostic and interventional radiologists who are prepared for careers in either private practice or academic medicine. The diagnostic component of our training emphasizes early resident independence and autonomy. The aim of the interventional component of training is to provide comprehensive training in image guided interventional procedures throughout the body and across disease spectrums. We provide training and experience in clinical evaluation and management of patients undergoing image guided procedures through experiential learning, clinical care and didactic instruction.
