A wealth of experience
Consider a one-year fellowship in interventional radiology. This fellowship, which combines clinical and research components, offers plenty of hands-on experience in a variety of areas, including:
- Angioplasty and stenting
- Stent grafts
- Vascular embolization
- Venous access techniques
- Dialysis Access Treatments
- Percutaneous Biopsies
- Drainages of abscess and fluid collections
- Urinary tract obstruction treatment
- Uterine fibroid embolization
- Bilary tract intervention
- Cancer Therapies (chemo and radioembolization, radiofrequency ablation)
Since we use a multidisciplinary approach in the management of dialysis patients with native arteriovenous fistulas, you'll also build valuable collaborative skills.
What will I do?
In addition to the experience mentioned above, we may also be able to offer electives in cardiac angiography and neuroangiography. Your main responsibility will lie in procedural training and patient care, but research is also considered an important part of the program. During your fellowship, you're encouraged to participate in several ongoing clinical projects and to initiate at least one research project.
We also strongly encourage you to present scientific material at the Canadian Association of Radiologists, Society of Interventional Radiology (CVIR) and Radiology Society of North America annual meetings.
