The Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center provides the unique opportunity for fellows to develop clinical skills and research interests under the tutelage of a large, experienced faculty in the preeminent hospitals in the Washington, D.C. area. The fellowship program successfully prepares the trainee for a leading role as an academic or private practice interventional radiologist.


The objectives are to provide trainees with a comprehensive, closely supervised educational experience in vascular/interventional radiology, emphasizing the performance of vascular and nonvascular diagnostic and interventional procedures and integration of the procedure into clinical patient care.
