Yale Interventional Radiology (YIR) is a progressive academic section which provides the entire spectrum of IR procedures with high-volume oncologic, vascular, transplant, trauma and pediatric services. Due to increasing service successes, the section is expanding. It is currently composed of 18 faculty, 6 advanced practice providers and 20 integrated and independent IR residents with access to a wide range of imaging modalities. The practice includes a large tertiary multi-disciplinary hospital (~1500 beds) with an associated NCI-designated cancer center, two affiliated peripheral inpatient hospitals (>500 beds), a VA hospital, two out-patient IR facilities and numerous IR clinics. Applicants should be enthusiastic about joining a mutually supportive group of faculty who excel at practicing “state-of-the art” IR within an academic environment.
