IR Application Process

Three medical students are accepted into the Duke Integrated IR Residency Program each year. For their clinical internship year requirement, applicants have the option of applying to Duke’s Department of  General Surgery for a preliminary internship year. However, this is not a requirement.

Interviews take place October through February. Medical Students are invited to apply to the Duke Integrated IR Residency through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Choose “Interventional Radiology Residency – Integrated” on the ERAS website. We participate in the NRMP match.

The Society of Interventional Radiology Residents Fellows Students (SIR-RFS) website has many excellent resources for interested students.

Medical students interested in learning more about the new Interventional Radiology Residency can read “The Interventional Radiology / Diagnostic Radiology Certificate and Interventional Radiology Residency” by John Kaufman, M.D. (Radiology 2014;273:318-21). Details can also be found at
