Interventional Radiology Fellowship
The IR fellowship at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria is based solely at OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center, a 616 bed tertiary referral center and Level I trauma center for 26 counties, 2.25 million people across Central Illinois.
Two fellows are selected each year and are fully integrated into a very busy, comprehensive VIR practice under the supervision of 6 very experienced IR faculty. The tremendous volume in the practice procedures outlined below includes in depth vascular diagnosis and interventions in peripheral arterial, carotid, aneurysm and venous disease. The ever-growing interventional oncology portion of the practice includes extensive experience in TACE, Y90 and tumor ablation. UFE, TIPS and other GI & GU procedures round out a comprehensive experience in all aspects of IR that few programs can match. Complete pre and post procedure assessment, inpatient consultation and management, as well as a comprehensive outpatient office practice experience ensure graduates of the program are able to be successful in any practice environment; from bringing new skills sets to a well-established practice to starting a new practice from scratch.
We have received ACGME approval for an ESIR program starting 7/1/2019 and an Independent IR/DR residency starting 7/1/2020.
