About the Program

The fellow is exposed to a broad range of interventional radiology procedures that will provide a solid foundation for either an academic or private practice.

The Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship faculty includes six board-certified physicians.

Most rotations occur at Allegheny General Hospital but depending on the needs of the fellow, up to 3 months of rotations may take place at other Allegheny Health Network hospitals such as West Penn Hospital or Forbes Hospital.

The fellow will also have the opportunity to enhance his or her teaching skills through involvement in the department's Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program.

Eligibility requirements for certification are available from the American Board of Radiology.
