Prior to appointment in the IR residency program, residents will complete a clinical year in general surgery at UAMS. Information on the general surgery program may be found at the following link: http://surgery.uams.edu/education/residencies-and-fellowships/general-surgery-residencies-and-fellowhips/

Once the clinical year is fulfilled the resident will complete three years in diagnostic radiology and the final two years will consist of primarily interventional radiology training. Residents are allowed two elective months (1 month in the R4 year and 1 month in the R5 year). Residents may choose to do their elective months at UAMS, CAVHS, or ACH. They may also elect to rotate at Sparks Regional Medical Center in Ft. Smith, AR with Dr. Clint Wood. The goals of this rotation is to develop advanced knowledge and skills in vascular diagnostic, therapeutic, and interventional procedures, particularly those related to peripheral arterial disease.
