We have commenced the much anticipated IR Residency. It is among the first programs in the United States to provide an opportunity to this pathway, and it promises to meet the needs of an evolving discipline in support of the healthcare needs of the region and the state. We are at the cutting edge of medicine and it is my great pleasure to be able to lead and guide future interventional radiologists in this growing field. Our department has leaders in its field of radiology, and with the new hospital and outpatient complex being constructed we are assured of a modern infrastructure to support our commitment to patient care and research.
I am happy to say that we will offer the Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) in the very near future, and look forward to also include the Independent Interventional Radiology pathway at a later time.
Besides the faculty, the hospital and medical school, Tucson offers a wealth of cultural and artistic amenities, and of course its physical beauty. With its long tradition as a university town, Tucson is a hub of diversity and intellectual pursuits, and a great place to raise a family.
We invite you to see all these for yourself as you make your future professional decisions.
