The ACGME-accredited Vascular & Interventional Radiology training program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center has a long history of producing distinguished physicians and leaders in the field of interventional radiology. Located in the heart of New York City’s Upper East Side, we are ranked as the best hospital in the New York metropolitan region and the 4th best hospital nationally according to US News and World Report.

Currently, we are offering positions for both the Independent and Integrated Residencies (3 residents/pathway) for the 2022 academic year (July 1,2022 start).

Our residents spend a majority of their time at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center (NYPH/WCMC).  This includes time spent at our state-of-the-art ambulatory care facility, dedicated outpatient venous practice, and longitudinal care clinic.  In addition, our trainees supplement their education by rotating at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for a comprehensive oncologic experience.  Trainees are immersed in all aspects of clinical vascular and interventional radiology including the full spectrum of interventional oncology, acute and chronic venous disorders, benign and malignant hepatobiliary interventions, women’s and men’s health interventions, peripheral vascular disease, dialysis access, portal hypertension, venous access and malformations, as well as pediatric care. 

Our Interventional Radiology Division provides clinical and consultative support for a busy hepatic transplantation program and numerous on-campus tumor boards. The fellowship experience emphasizes the development of consultative and clinical skills in addition to high volume hands-on exposure to procedures.

Research is strongly encouraged with endless opportunities to complete projects during your time at WCMC.  With dedicated research coordinators, epidemiologists, IR research fellows, and access to state-of-the art equipment, there is no shortage of resources to help accomplish research goals.   

Trainees who have a presentation accepted to the SIR, WCIO, ISET or other nationally recognized Interventional Radiology meetings for work performed at NYPH-Weill Cornell are funded to attend the meeting. An academic fund is also available to subsidize books, board fees and societal membership fees.
