The program currently has 48 resident positions and is conducted at 5 major teaching hospitals within and associated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Rotating through all 5 facilities, the resident gains a broad exposure to all types of disorders, both the commonplace and unusual. The 48-month program leads to eligibility for examination and certification by the American Board of Radiology.
The integrated residency program in interventional radiology offers quality medical educational experience in image-based diagnosis, image-guided procedures, and peri- and post-procedural patient care. The five-year residency curriculum concentrates on diagnostic radiology during the first three years and interventional radiology during the last two years, leading to dual certification in interventional and diagnostic radiology. The integrated interventional radiology residency is available to medical students, who apply through the NRMP main match, as a categorical program beginning with a preliminary year in general surgery at UCLA followed by residency training in the PGY-2 year.
Residents are encouraged to engage in investigative projects under faculty supervision. Research opportunities are available throughout the four years of residency training.
