Independent IR/DR Residency
The Independent IR/DR residency program is entirely conducted at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, a 629 bed adult hospital and a 136 bed attached children’s hospital. Both serve as community hospitals for the 350,000 Peoria metropolitan area and tertiary referral hospital and level I trauma center for 26 counties in north central Illinois with a population of 2.25 million. The program has six full-time IR faculty with 24/7 coverage. The program is small by design with only two residents per year, but in a large, high volume (more than 17,000 IR procedures) department. The clinical experience is complete with all levels of complexity, acuity, and variety of procedures/clinical conditions treated in today’s IR department. The support for the IR department from the University and Medical Center is outstanding with state-of-the-art facilities, including equipment, personnel, and space.
